The company sees serious risks for the safe operation of the ZANP due to the presence of Russian military personnel, their weapons, equipment and explosives at the station.

"As a result of periodic shelling, the infrastructure of the station was damaged, there are risks of hydrogen leakage and sputtering of radioactive substances, and there is a high fire hazard," Energoatom said.

Nevertheless, yesterday, after the suspension, two power units of the ZANP were reconnected to the power grid, they continue to produce electricity for Ukraine's needs.

"There are no comments on the operation of the equipment and safety systems," added Energoatom.

Russian media: Zaporozhye NPP supplies electricity both to Ukraine and to the occupied territories

The electricity produced by the fifth and sixth power units of the Zaporozhye NPP is supplied to the Russian-occupied territory of Ukraine, Uladzimir Rohau, a representative of the Russian-appointed occupation administration of the Zaporozhye region, told RIA Novosti.

As the publication clarifies, electricity is simultaneously supplied to both the territories controlled by Kyiv and the occupied territories.

In recent weeks, the Zaporizhia NPP has come under fire, which Russia and Ukraine blame each other for.

At the moment, the station is under the control of Russian troops - there were reports in the media about Russian military equipment being based on the territory of the NPP.

In addition to shelling, the station has problems with energy supply, which can also lead to disruption of its functioning.

  • Zaporizhia NPP is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe.

    Russian troops seized it shortly after the start of the invasion of Ukraine, in March 2022.

    Since then, Kyiv and Moscow have repeatedly accused each other of shelling the territory near the nuclear power plant.

    At the same time, the Ukrainian technical staff continues to work at the station.

  • The UN called on Russia and Ukraine to create a demilitarized zone around the station.

    A similar call was made by Ukraine, the call was supported by several countries, including the USA and EU countries.

    Moscow declares that the Russian military is stationed at the nuclear power plant only to protect it in the event of war.

  • The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been insisting on sending its mission to the Zaporozhye NPP for several weeks now, noting that the nuclear plant was "completely out of control" due to the war.
