  • Ukraine's power system currently has no physical connections with Russia's power system. Therefore, the supply of electricity from Ukrainian power plants to Russia is currently physically impossible.

  • Any change in the situation at ZNPP will be an act of nuclear terrorism, and those posing such a threat will be held accountable for it, with all that it entails.

On March 4, after heavy fighting in Enerhodar, ZNPP was captured by Russian invaders. Some of the plant's facilities have been damaged by Russian shelling, and plant employees have been captured by Russian forces.

In late April, ZNPP completely resumed operations, although the Russian authorities are trying to gain full control over the plant, involving specialists from Russia.

The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine has already filed charges in absentia against a Russian general who took part in the seizure of ZNPP.
