On Monday, Ukraine’s state-owned power generating company, Energoatom, announced a power outage at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Plant. This came after a Russia-installed official claimed that the plant had been switched to standby and emergency power supply.
“Yes, we have the seventh blackout since the start of the [Russian] occupation,” Energoatom told Reuters.
Yuriy Malashko, governor of the Zaporizhzhia region in Ukraine said that there was a fire at one of the facilities in Zaporizhzhia city due to an overload in the power system.
“Problems with electricity supply that arose in the city of Zaporizhzhia are not related to shelling,” Malashko said on the Telegram messaging app.
