Russians tried to attack Khmelnytsky nuclear power plant, claims President Zelensky | Abroad

“The most likely thing is that these drones targeted Khmelnytsky’s power plant,” Zelensky said in a video. According to him, these types of attacks show that “the pressure on the terrorist state is insufficient”, referring to Russia.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported that there were heavy explosions at the plant. This caused glass damage and temporarily disrupted systems used to monitor radiation in the environment, says IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi. “The fact that numerous windows on the property have been destroyed shows how close this was. We might not be so lucky next time.”

According to the Ukrainian government, laboratory and office buildings have been damaged. The mayor of the municipality where the exchange is located says that twenty people have been injured.
