Russian invaders have placed military equipment and explosives in the turbine compartment of power unit No. 4 at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP).

Source: State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate of Ukraine, following a weekly meeting with International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) representatives on 2 May.

Quote: "The IAEA representatives reported the fact that the Russian occupiers are storing military equipment, weapons and explosives in the turbine compartment of power unit No. 4 of the ZNPP.".

Details: The Inspectorate stressed that such actions by the invaders are highly detrimental to the nuclear and radiation safety of the nuclear installations on the ZNPP’s industrial site, and endanger both the nuclear power plant’s personnel and the residents of nearby towns and villages.

The State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate emphasised that in the event of an emergency at the ZNPP, it will not only be Ukraine that will feel the consequences.

The Inspectorate once again called on the international community to put pressure on the aggressor, particularly by imposing tough sanctions on enterprises in the Russian nuclear industry and their affiliates.

In early August 2022, it emerged that military equipment was also being stored in the engine room of power unit No. 2 of the ZNPP. »
