After Putin "annexed" occupied parts of Ukraine to Russia on September 30, the dictator signed a new decree. According to the document, the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant is completely under Russian control and will be reconnected to Rosatom. The text states that the facility will be operated "in-house". In addition, the Russian invaders created the operating organization of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant.
BBC confirmed the situation and also indicated the existence of acts of intimidation. According to the report, the station staff may be sent to the front unless they sign the documents authorizing the transfer to control of the power company Rosatom. Recall that the employees of an important nuclear facility are Ukrainians. They have been under occupation for more than 7 months in violation of the rules of the working day.
Ukraine does not recognize such a move by the Russian Federation and states that electricity will flow through Ukrainian channels. Recall that Volodymyr Zelenskyy called Putin’s attempt to seize new territories insignificantly.
