As of 12:00 on August 27, 2022, the Zaporizhzhia NPP operates with the risk of violating radiation and fire safety standards

Over the past day, the russian military has repeatedly shelled the ZNPP site, the damage is currently being investigated.

Yesterday, after the shutdown, two power units of the ZNPP were reconnected to the grid and produce electricity for Ukraine's needs. There are currently no comments on the operation of equipment and security systems.

At the same time, due to the presence of the russian military, their weapons, equipment and explosives at the power plant, there are serious risks for the safe operation of the ZNPP. As a result of periodic shelling, the infrastructure of the power plant has been damaged, there are risks of hydrogen leakage and sputtering of radioactive substances, and the fire hazard is high.

The Ukrainian staff of the ZNPP continues to work and make every effort to ensure nuclear and radiation safety, as well as eliminate the consequences of damage.

The russian military, preparing for the arrival of the IAEA mission, increased the pressure on the personnel of the ZNPP to prevent them from disclosing evidence about the crimes of the occupiers at the plant and its use as a military base.

Ukraine calls on the world community to take immediate measures to force russia to liberate the ZNPP and transfer the power plant to the control of our country for the sake of the security of the whole world.
