Russia accuses Ukraine of striking Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant | News

ModernizationRussia accuses Ukraine of striking an energy source at the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant in a bombing. This was reported by the Russian state news agency TASS.

It is Alexander Volga – who was appointed by the Russians in charge of the city – who makes the accusation. “One of the strikes hit a power source,” he said, without specifying when the attack took place. It was an artillery shell. I have pictures of her.”

However, there will be no immediate danger. After all, the energy sources of the nuclear power plant occupied by the Russians are protected by a structure that cannot be destroyed with a single blow or a single blow.

Yesterday, a spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry said that Ukraine was trying to seize the nuclear power plant:

concrete walls

According to Professor Yuri Braslavsky of Sevastopol University, a specialist in nuclear power plants, the nuclear power plant workshop has “concrete walls more than a meter thick, which are reinforced with special steel and other technologies. The tower can withstand the fall of a medium-sized aircraft (or any other object weighing up to up to 10 tons and fly at speeds of up to 750 kilometers per hour).

According to Volga, the level of radiation at the nuclear power plant is constantly monitored. All systems will work and there will be no increase in radiation.

Earlier, the International Atomic Energy Agency reported that the nuclear power plant “has lost contact again” with the power grid. The UN agency was informed by Ukrainian technicians trying to keep the plant running. A similar incident occurred on August 25.

The Ukrainian authorities told the International Atomic Energy Agency that the new chapter occurred “after the Russian bombing of the region.” With a backup line, power can still be supplied to the external electricity grid via a nearby thermal power plant.

This facility also allows the power plant to have its own power if needed. The Russian-backed authorities confirm that a main line was damaged in the bombing and say that electricity was cut off in the neighboring areas.

International Atomic Energy Agency chief Rafael Grossi on Friday expressed concern about the safety of the nuclear power plant, which he believes stands or falls “with a reliable connection to electricity.” Nuclear power plants sometimes rely on external energy to cool reactors. If not, the nuclear power plant will rely on diesel emergency generators. If something goes wrong there, for example due to a lack of fuel or a defect, a breakdown could become possible.

The Russian Defense Ministry accused the Ukrainian army of trying to retake the site on Saturday, but it was destroyed by Russian forces. Moscow and Kiev have accused each other of bombing the world’s largest nuclear power plant for weeks, raising fears of a nuclear catastrophe.


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that Turkey can play the role of mediator in the nuclear power plant issue. According to the Turkish president’s office, the country wants to “play the role of mediator as it did in the grain deal.”

Erdogan and Putin plan to discuss the issue of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant at a summit in Uzbekistan later this month.
