In addition, Russia has sent to the council members evidence of shelling of the facility by the Ukrainian army on August 27, TASS adds.

Zaporizhzhia NPP, which is located near the city of Energodar, is under the control of Moscow.

The Russian Defense Ministry said Ukrainian forces had carried out several strikes on the site of the nuclear plant in recent days, using drones, heavy artillery and rocket launchers.

Most of the attacks were repelled by air defense systems, but some projectiles hit infrastructure sites and an area containing nuclear waste, the Russian news agency noted. 

Kyiv denies Moscow's accusations, adds BTA.
