Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has released CCTV footage on Telegram that captured the moment when Russia attacked a nuclear power plant in Mykolai and caused an explosion.

Ukraine’s state nuclear power company Energoatom said Russia attacked the Fiudenukhrainsk nuclear power plant in Mykolai early in the morning on the 19th local time with a missile.

The explosion occurred approximately 300 meters from the reactor, damaging the power plant building.

In addition, nearby hydroelectric power plants were temporarily shut down, and transmission lines were also damaged.

Fortunately, the reactor was not damaged and is functioning normally.

Energoatom said, “Currently, the three reactors of the Fiudenukhrainsk nuclear power plant are operating without any problems.

Energoatom has denounced the Russian missile attack on the nuclear plant as an act of nuclear terrorism.

“Russia is endangering the whole world, and we must stop them before it is too late,” said the President of Ukraine, Zelensky, in a telegram.

As Ukraine’s recent offensive to retake the southern part of the country continues, Russian rocket attacks have continued in Mykolai space.

At the Zaporiza nuclear power station, which was taken over by Russia in early March, the nuclear power station and the surrounding areas continued to fight, raising concerns about the release of radioactive material.

As a result, after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) sent inspectors, the fighting around the Japorija nuclear power plant has calmed down a little at a time.

The IAEA is holding talks with Russia and Ukraine on how to make the Zaporiza nuclear power plant a safe demilitarized zone to prevent damage from additional explosives.
