As reported earlier, the Zaporizhia NPP was captured by the Russian military on March 4. Since then, the invaders have deployed at the site military equipment and ammunition. They have also been shelling the surrounding area from the plant’s premises. The Russians are also shelling the plant itself, destroying power lines, severing the NPP’s external power supply, while blaming Ukraine’s Armed Forces for the attacks.

Russians abduct and torture ZNPP employees. In addition, according to Energoatom, the invaders started illegal construction on the NPP.
