Russian terrorists shelled ZNPP at night again

Today, September 21, 2022, at 1:13 am, due to another shelling of the Zaporizhzhya NPP by russian terrorists, the equipment linking the ZNPP power unit No. 6 to the open switchgear was damaged.

Following the attack, the unit transformer and the unit auxiliary transformers were disconnected. Due to the loss of power, there was an emergency start of two diesel generators of the safety systems to ensure the operation of the fuel cooling pumps.

At 2:00 am, ZNPP staff found an opportunity and set up power supply for unit No. 6 in-house needs from the busbars of other power plant units. The diesel generators of the power unit 6 were turned off and put into standby mode.

The russian military continue to commit acts of nuclear terrorism at nuclear power plants in Ukraine. They are not stopped even by the presence of IAEA inspectors at the Zaporizhzhya NPP site.

We once again expect from this organization more decisive steps to be taken to cease russia's aggressive actions against civilian nuclear facilities of Ukraine, help in the deoccupation of the ZNNP and establish a nuclear and physical security zone around the nuclear power plants of Ukraine!
