Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant occupied by the Russians
Located in the south of Ukraine, the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant, the largest in Europe, was seized by Russian forces on the night of March 3-4 and has been under Russian control since then. Russian soldiers are stationed on the premises, and employees of the Russian company Rosatom are also stationed there.
According to the Ukrainian side, the actions and provocations of the authorities and occupation forces pose a serious risk of a nuclear catastrophe. Kyiv accuses Moscow of nuclear blackmail.
