Part of the Zaporozhye region, including the city of Enerhodar and the nuclear power plant located on its territory, has been controlled by the Russian military since late February. Since mid-July, the parties have been mutually accusing each other of shelling both the Zaporozhye NPP and Energodar.
On August 25, the CAA reported that the emergency system had been triggered and the Zaporizhzhya NPP was reconnected due to a fire in the adjacent territory. They explained that the cause of the fire was shelling from the Armed Forces of Ukraine. After that, the Ukrainian “Energoatom”, which formally continues to manage the nuclear power plant, announced that the plant was disconnected from the energy system of Ukraine.
At the request of Roskomnadzor, RBC provides data on the details of the military operation in Ukraine based on information from Russian official sources.
The Russian authorities have repeatedly stated that they are ready to organize a visit to the station by the IAEA mission. The arrival of the staff of the international agency was also advocated in Ukraine. Both sides spoke out in support of the permanent presence of IAEA experts at ZNPP. According to The Wall Street Journal, a group of IAEA specialists may arrive at the power plant next week.
