The Russian Federation is shelling the Zaporizhzhia NPP to cut off electricity in south Ukraine.
Artillery shelling of the Zaporizhzhya NPP is intended to destroy the plant’s infrastructure, damage all power lines through which electricity is supplied to Ukraine’s power system, and cut off power in the south of the country, stated Energoatom. The disconnection of the ZNPP from the power system is being facilitated by Rosatom representatives located at the station. The shelling of the station will continue until the occupiers reach their goal, said the head of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Military Administration. On August 5, the station’s fourth power unit was turned off after the shelling by the Russian occupiers. Currently, only two of the Zaporizhzhia Power Plant’s six power units are in operation.
