The Russian military took control of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant

The Zaporozhye nuclear power plant (NPP) in the Ukrainian city of Energodar has completely come under the control of the Russian military, a representative of the National Guard told Russian media.

According to him, the power plant is currently operating normally. “The administration of the facility is fulfilling its functional duties. The necessary access control to the station is being carried out in full. The station is fully controlled by the National Guard of the Russian Federation,” he added. The representative of the department noted that after negotiations with the National Guard of Ukraine, about 240 Ukrainians laid down their arms and were released home.

Zaporozhye NPP is the largest power plant in Europe. On the night of March 4, a fire broke out in the training building of the nuclear power plant as a result of clashes. Ukraine has accused Russia of shelling the reactor. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky argued that the fire “threatens a second Chernobyl.” However, IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi said that all the safety systems of the six reactors at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant in Energodar were not affected by the fire. No radiation was released, he said.
