DInternational Atomic Energy Agency Director General Raphael Croci announced on Sunday that there had been “powerful explosions” in the area of the Ukrainian power plant in Zaporizhzhia.
“The information is very disturbing. There have been explosions at the site of this large nuclear power plant, which is completely unacceptable,” Croci said in a statement.
Russia accused Ukrainian forces of new bombings against the nuclear power plant, while confirming that radiation levels there were “in accordance with regulations”. The Russian military said in a statement that the Kyiv regime continues to carry out provocations to create a catastrophic threat at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, the largest in Europe and militarily occupied by Russia.
On Saturday and Sunday, Ukrainian forces fired more than 20 “large-caliber shells” at the plant, the report said. These specifically exploded between power blocks number 4 and 5 and, according to the same source, targeted the roof of a “special building” located near these blocks.
Ukraine’s nuclear agency, for its part, has accused Russia of being behind the blasts. “On the morning of November 20, 2022, following a heavy Russian bombardment, at least 12 strikes were recorded at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant site,” Enerkotam said, accusing the Russians of “once again organizing a nuclear threat and endangering the entire world.” “.
