Occupiers Began Accession of Zaporizhzhia NPP to the Energy System of Russia

On August 9, "Rosatom" launched the switching of the Zaporizhzhia station through the annexed Crimea to the Russian energy system

Zaporizhia nuclear power plant is occupied by the Russians and mined. The personnel of the nuclear power plant are held hostage by the occupiers. A few days ago, the Russians said they will blow up the station if it did not pass into Russian possession. Now Rosatom has begun disconnecting the nuclear power plant from the Ukrainian energy system and reconnecting it to Crimea. The problem is that the annexed Crimea is connected to the energy system of the terrorist state. According to the legitimate head of Energoatom, Petro Kotin, the invaders justify the theft of the Ukrainian nuclear power plant by damaging 3 out of 4 communication lines from the nuclear power plant, which increased the likelihood of an accident.

"In order to switch the ZNPP to the Crimea, it is necessary to extinguish the entire station, to extinguish the entire south of Ukraine — the occupied parts of the Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions... After that, they begin to energize the areas again from the substation in Dzhankoy, gradually reach Kakhovska station and then energize the ZNPP," Petro Kotin.

Perhaps we are witnessing the beginning of the end. Perhaps there will be a second Chornobyl in Ukraine.

"This is their plan, and they started to implement it," Petro Kotin.
