Invading Russian forces have stolen the official stamp of the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP), which is used for certifying official documents, the press service of Ukraine’s nuclear operator Energoatom reported on Telegram messenger on Oct. 7.

“Continuing the attempts of a raider capture of the Zaporizhzhya NPP, yesterday the invaders stole the enterprise’s stamp, which certifies the right to sign documents,” reads the report.

In this regard, the head of Energoatom and the acting head of Zaporizhzhya NPP, Petro Kotin, issued an order to put into effect a new official stamp for the ZNPP, while the stolen one should be considered invalid.

Russian dictator Vladimir Putin on Oct. 5 signed a “decree” on the transfer of the occupied ZNPP to Russian state ownership.

Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry called such Putin’s move void.

At the same time, Energoatom earlier called these dictator’s plans “the agony of the aggressor country.”
