Europe’s Largest Nuclear Power Plant is Hit by More Russian Rockets

Ukraine has accused Russia of once again firing rockets at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant overnight and has called for new international sanctions on Moscow for ‘nuclear terror’, after the site was also struck by missiles on Friday leading to warnings of a ‘very real risk of a nuclear disaster’.

Moscow and Kyiv have been blaming each other for the bombings of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear site in southern Ukraine, which has been under Russian control since the early days of the February 24 invasion but is still run by Ukrainian technicians. The allegations have not been confirmed by independent sources.

Ukraine’s state nuclear energy company Enerhoatom that operates the plant said the ‘Russian occupiers once again fired rockets at the site of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant and the town of Enerhodar’, damaging three radiation sensors at the facility.

‘One… employee was hospitalised with shrapnel wounds caused by the explosion,’ it said in a statement.

The company added 174 containers with spent nuclear fuel were stored in the open air at the plant’s dry storage facility that was attacked.
