Ukraine has accused Russia of firing multiple rockets at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear site in southern Ukraine over the weekend, sparking “a very real risk of a nuclear disaster”. The power plant has been under Russian control since the early days of the war but is still run by Ukrainian technicians. Ukraine’s state nuclear energy company Enerhoatom that operates the plant said: “Russian occupiers once again fired rockets at the site of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant and the town of Enerhodar.” Three facility radiation sensors were reportedly damaged in the attack and one employee hospitalised with shrapnel wounds. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said of the attack: “Russian nuclear terror requires a stronger response from the international community – sanctions on the Russian nuclear industry and nuclear fuel.”
