A Ukrainian nuclear power plant located in the city of Energodar has been attacked by three ‘kamikadze drones’ belonging to the Ukrainian armed forces, Russian media reports, citing local officials.
According to them, Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant, located in southeastern Ukraine, has not been damaged.
Its reactor was not impacted by the attack either.
The radiation background is normal and it is constantly being monitored, Vladimir Rogov, a member of the Zaporozhye Region military-civil administration, told Tass news agency.
This is not the first time the NPP has been targeted by the Ukrainian military. On July 12, Ukrainian UAVs dropped several 120mm shells on a building located next to the power plant, causing damage to its roof and window, the press-service of the Energodar city administration told RIA Novosti.
