"There were no casualties,” he continued. “All emergency services are on site and the fire is under control."

Although Ukraine did not confirm whether its forces were behind the alleged attacks on the Russian power stations, Ukrainian intelligence chief Kyrylo Budanov suggested the blackouts were a result of Ukrainian sabotage tactics.

“Much of this is no accident,” he said after admitting Ukraine was paying Russian saboteurs, according to the Sun. “Something is constantly on fire [in Russia].”

“Signaling equipment on railways, it lights up several times a day, on various highways constantly for two to three hours, sometimes for five to six hours, traffic gets suspended,” Budanov added.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Monday morning’s alleged drone strikes came shortly after a number of Ukraine’s war plans were shared online in a U.S. intelligence leak.

The classified documents indicated Ukraine was preparing to launch a massive counter-offensive attack in an effort to retake control of territories currently controlled by Vladimir Putin’s forces.

The alleged Ukrainian drone attacks also came shortly after Putin announced nearly 150,000 more men would be mobilized into Ukraine between April 1 and July 15 in an effort to bring the war to a definitive end.

Meanwhile, another leaked classified document contained a rumor that two Kremlin officials are plotting to sabotage Russia’s position in Ukraine while Putin undergoes chemotherapy for his alleged cancer diagnosis.
