As of 10:00 am on August 29, 2022, Zaporizhzhya 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. Due to this, 10 Enerhodar civilians, including four nuclear power plant employees, received wounds of varying degrees of severity.

Two ZNPP power units, reconnected to the grid upon the shutdown, are producing electricity for Ukraine's needs smoothly. 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 site, there are severe risks to the ZNPP safe operation. Due to periodic shelling, the infrastructure of the power plant has been damaged, there are risks of hydrogen leakage and sputtering of radioactive substances, as well as the fire hazard is high.

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

While preparing for the IAEA mission arrival, the occupationists stepped up pressure on the ZNPP personnel to prevent them from disclosing evidence about the crimes of the occupationists 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.
