Ukrainian forces again shelled the territory of the Zaporizhzhya NPP, local authorities recorded the fall of three shells near the isotope storage, said the head of the military-civil administration (MAC) of the Zaporozhye region Yevhen Balitsky in Telegram.
“Ukrainian armed formations continue shelling the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant. <…> At least three arrivals were recorded in the area of the storage of radioactive isotopes, — he wrote.
The head of the CAA added that the high-voltage line of the Kakhovskaya substation was damaged as a result of the shelling. A fire broke out in the field due to a power line break, it is being extinguished, he wrote.
Zaporozhye NPP— the largest nuclear power plant in Europe. It was built on the banks of the Kakhovka reservoir in the city of Energodar in the Zaporozhye region of Ukraine. The southern and central parts of this region, in particular Energodar and the territory of the nuclear power plant itself, are controlled by Russian forces. Meanwhile, the station is still operated by Ukrainian operators (NPP— a separate division of the Ukrainian Energoatom).
In recent months, the military-civilian administration, which was formed on the territory controlled by Russian troops, has repeatedly reported shelling the territory of the nuclear power plant from Ukraine. The Russian authorities warned that strikes on the station could lead to catastrophic consequences that would affect not only the territory of Ukraine, the republics of Donbass and Russia, but also European countries.
