CNN reports: The continued presence of Russian forces at and near the Zaporizhzhia power plant is a “constant trigger of a possible n*****r disaster,” Ukraine’s energy minister said yesterday.
All six reactors at the plant in southeastern Ukraine remain disconnected from the electricity grid, operator Energoatom said today after the facility—which has been occupied by Russian forces since March—was disconnected for the first time in its history yesterday.
Ukraine has accused Russian troops of using the plant as a shield, risking a potential disaster. The Kremlin has in turn repeatedly accused Ukrainian forces of shelling the plant.
Negotiations are under way for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to visit the plant and Halushchenko said the United Nations n*****r watchdog should be permitted to study the impact of Russian troops’ presence there.
