Russian invaders fired at the South Ukrainian nuclear power plant in the Nikolaev region. An enemy shell fell 300 meters from nuclear reactors, according to Energoatom's Telegram channel.
The shelling took place on September 19 at 00:20. Just 300 meters from the reactors there was a powerful explosion. The shock wave damaged the building of the nuclear power plant and smashed more than 100 windows.
One of the hydroelectric units of the Aleksandrovskaya hydroelectric power station, which is part of the South Ukrainian energy complex, turned off after the explosion. Three high-voltage power lines were also switched off.
All three power units of the TNPP are now operating normally. Fortunately, there were no injuries among the station staff.
Energoatom published a photo of the crater left after the missile hit. It is 4 meters in diameter and 2 meters deep.
President Volodymyr Zelensky reacted to the shelling of the nuclear power plant by publishing a photo of damaged buildings on the territory of the station.
“The invaders wanted to shoot again, but they forgot what a nuclear power plant is. Russia endangers the whole world. We must stop her before it's too late”, — the president added.
- September 11 completely stopped the work of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.
