The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), shelling the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant (ZaES), damaged containers with distillates, said adviser to the general director of Rosenergoatom Renat Karchaa.

In an interview with TASS, he noted that these tanks are located between power units No. 4 and No. 5. According to him, with their help, the cooling system of the nuclear reactor functions, some components and assemblies are washed.

“This is what the IAEA experts called a non-radioactive leak,” Karchaa said.

In addition, he added that the APU, having damaged the containers with distillates, partially destroyed the cooling system. As a representative of Rosenergoatom explained, this emergency, together with other factors, could damage the nuclear power plant.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that the Russian army eliminated the firepower of the Ukrainian units, with the help of which the attacks on the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant were carried out.
