WorldEuropeRussian military abducts, detained director of Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant: Energoatom

The Russian military has abducted and detained the director of Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, Ukraine’s state nuclear operator Energoatom has stated.

The nuclear power plant, the scene of repeated Russian escalation and threats to the plant’s integrity, is Europe’s largest plant of its kind. Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly accused Russian invaders of targeting the plant and threatening to damage the plant in the event of further Ukrainian advances.

As per Energoatom, director Ihor Murashov was held as his car left the facility towards the nearby Russian-occupied city of Enerhodar at around 4:00 PM on Friday. Murashiv was blindfolded and believed to have been taken to a makeshift prison in Enerhodars.

Moscow seized the plant in March during its initial advances into Ukrainian territory, keeping much of its Ukrainian staff at the facility to maintain its operation. Due to repeated shelling of the facility, Ukrainian authorities shut down the plant’s reactors in September to avoid disaster.

Both Russian and Ukrainian authorities accuse each other of repeatedly shelling the plant, amidst growing international concern that a disaster could occur at the facility.

In a statement published on Telegram on Saturday, Energoatom president Petro Kotin stated that the nuclear power plant chief “bears main and exclusive responsibility for nuclear and radiation safety” at the plant.

Days before the kidnapping, members of Rosatom, Russia’s state nuclear operator, were reported to have visited the facility with the intention of transferring control to Russian authorities and ultimately the Russian energy grid. Kotin said that he believed that the kidnapping was an attempt to force Ukraine to transfer control of the plant.
