WorldRussiaUkraine blames Moscow troops of attack on nuclear plant

The nuclear agency of Ukraine, ‘Energoatom’ on Monday has blamed Moscow troops of an attack on the nation’s second-largest nuclear plant in the south.

The blames comes following the Russia-controlled Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in Ukraine, which is largest atomic facility in Europe, has faced frequent shelling in last few months, raising fears of a nuclear incident.


On Monday, “The Russian military carried out a missile attack on the industrial site” of the Pivdennoukrainsk nuclear power plant, Energoatom said in a post via Telegram messaging service.

It mentioned that a “powerful explosion” took place “just 300 meters” (985 feet) from the facility’s reactors but they were operating as “normal.”

The strike has damaged over 100 windows of the power station’s building, the nuclear agency added, sharing photos of glass shattered around the broken windows.

The agency has also released photographs of what it said was a two-meter deep crater from where the missile landed.

“Fortunately, no one among the power plant staff was hurt,” Energoatom said.

“Moscow endangers the whole world. We have to stop it before it gets too late,” Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Telegram, reacting to the strike.
