August 5, 2022, 22:43, “Today, the [Russian] occupiers created another extremely risky situation for everyone in Europe – they fired at the Zaporizhzhia NPP, twice in one day. This is the largest nuclear power plant on our continent. And any shelling of this facility is an open, brazen crime, an act of terror. Russia should bear responsibility for the very fact of creating a threat to the nuclear power plant. And this is not only another argument in favor of recognizing Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism. This is an argument in favor of applying tough sanctions against the entire Russian nuclear industry – from Rosatom to all related companies and individuals. This is purely a matter of safety. The one who creates nuclear threats to other nations is definitely not capable of using nuclear technologies safely.” https://www.president.gov.ua/en/news/sho-bilshe-nashogo-zerna-bude-na-svitovomu-rinku-menshim-bud-76905
“Zaporizhzhia NPP’s power unit No. 4 disconnected from grid. Evacuation impossible in case of accident
Oleksandr Starukh, Head of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Military Administration, has stated that evacuation will be almost impossible in case of an accident at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant.
“A prepared provocation took place in Enerhodar town. Two power lines were damaged, power unit No. 4 [of Zaporizhzhia NPP] was disconnected from the power grid. There is no great danger yet, but I must state that it is almost impossible to implement our evacuation plans in the current conditions,” Starukh said during the nationwide telethon.
According to him, all shelters in the territory of the NPP are occupied by the Russian military.
As reported, on the evening of August 5, Russians hit a high-voltage power line at the ZNPP, and a fire broke out.
As a result of damage to power lines, power unit No. 4 of the NPP was disconnected from the power grid.

💥 For the second time in the last few hours, the occupiers fired at the Zaporizhzhia NPP: three “arrivals” were recorded directly at the site of the station
On the evening of August 5, Russian terrorists fired at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant for the second time with rocket-propelled grenades. Three “arrivals” were recorded right on the site of the station, near one of the power units where the nuclear reactor is located.
The raiders seriously damaged the nitrogen-oxygen station and the combined auxiliary building. There are risks of hydrogen leakage and sputtering of radioactive substances. Fire danger is high. Currently, there are no victims.
Before the shelling, Rosatom representatives hurriedly left the station. They probably knew that an attack was being prepared.
The Ukrainian staff of the ZNPP is on site and performs all measures to ensure nuclear and radiation safety and eliminates the consequences of damage.
We will remind, today at approximately 2:30 p.m. the Russian military shelled the Zaporizhzhya NPP three times. They aimed at the high-voltage communication line of the 330 kV VRP autotransformer of the Zaporizhzhya TPP. As a result, it was damaged, emergency protection was triggered on one of the power units, diesel generators were switched on. This unit is currently unloaded and disconnected from the power grid. #ZNPP” https://t.me/energoatom_ua/8675
