A hotel in the town of Enerhodar, host to the occupied Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP), was hit on the morning of Oct. 23, Enerhodar mayor Dmytro Orlov reported on Telegram, noting that the hotel was often used by Russian occupying forces for accommodation.

As a result, the building has suffered damage, though Russian casualties, if any, are unknown.

"Once again, it was loud this Sunday morning,” Orlov wrote.

“Hotel Alisa has been reportedly hit and damaged.”

Enerhodar, and the ZNPP, were occupied early in the full-scale war. Russian forces have repeatedly shelled the occupied facility, disconnecting it from the Ukrainian grid numerous times. They have also kidnapped a number of the facility’s staff, and have reportedly parked military equipment, including explosives, within the facility itself.

The International Atomic Energy Agency has called for the plant to be demilitarized, and has warned that military action around the facility may cause a catastrophic incident.
