The Russian occupiers claim to mine the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant and threaten to blow up the facility. This was reported by the operator of the Energoatom nuclear power plant.
The press service of the enterprise refers to the statement of the head of the radiation, chemical and biological defense forces of the Russian Armed Forces, Valery Vasiliev.
He declared that the station would be “either Russian land or a scorched desert.” According to the occupier, the Russian military has no other way but to blow up the station.
