Personnel partially rotated at Chornobyl NPP – Energoatom

On March 20, 2022, Chornobyl Nuclear Power Plant’s personnel were partially rotated and the persons who had been staying within the plant’s site temporarily occupied by Russian troops were evacuated.

The relevant statement was made by Energoatom National Nuclear Energy Generating Company of Ukraine on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Today a total of 64 persons have been evacuated: 50 Chornobyl NPP’s staff members, nine servicemen of the National Guard of Ukraine (eight women and one cancer patient), one employee of the Ukrainian State Emergency Service and four stalkers,” the report states.

A total of 46 volunteers from among Chornobyl NPP’s staff members went to replace the evacuated personnel to perform their duties and ensure the plant’s performance.

The evacuated personnel have spent about 600 hours in the workplace, heroically performing their duties and maintaining the required safety level.

A reminder that Chornobyl NPP was captured by Russian troops on February 24, 2022, when Russian President Vladimir Putin initiated a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, starting a war. Since then, Russian troops have been shelling and destroying the key infrastructure facilities, launching missile strikes on Ukrainian cities and villages, killing civilians.
