On February 25, 2022, Russian soldiers occupied the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, captured Ukrainian personnel, and turned the plant into a military base. Russians regularly shoot at ZNPP, blackmailing Ukrainians and Europe with a nuclear catastrophe. Employees of the Russian Rosatom were brought to the station and began to switch the Zaporizhzhia atomic power plant to the Russian energy system. The occupiers are constantly kidnapping, torturing, and interrogating Ukrainian employees.
On April 12, the Center for national resistance of Ukraine announced a change in the plans of the invaders: they demanded that Rosatom personnel prepare a list of relatives they brought with them to Energodar, as well as pack their things and be ready for urgent evacuation at any second.
At the same time, Russian abuse of Ukrainian station personnel is getting worse, abductions are becoming more frequent (4 in recent days), and mutilations are more serious.
