Russia has placed explosives near Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant Unit 4

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

According to information from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Russian troops have installed military gear, guns, and explosives in the turbine department of unit 4 of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant.

Russian soldiers are reportedly keeping similar materials in other parts of the plant, according to reports from Ukraine’s State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate and the IAEA. The workers at the factory and the locals living nearby are seriously at risk as a result of these acts.

The Inspectorate highlights the possibility of cross-border repercussions from any radioactive substance discharge.

The biggest nuclear power plant in Europe is located in Zaporizhzhia, which is in southern Ukraine. 6,000 megawatts of gross power may be produced by the plant.

The Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant has had six external power outages since Russian military forces took control of it a year ago. Following the latest outage, the director general of the IAEA Rafael Mariano Grossi, issued an emotional statement calling for a protection zone around the plant and saying he was “astonished by the complacency” around the issue.
