“Today, September 19, 2022, at 00:20, the Russian army fired a missile at the industrial zone of the South Ukrainian Nuclear Power Plant.”

“A powerful explosion occurred just 300 meters from the reactors of the South Ukrainian Nuclear Power Plant.”

“The shock wave damaged the NPP buildings, more than 100 windows were broken. One of the hydroelectric units of the Oleksandrivska HPP, which is a part of the South Ukrainian energy complex, was shut down. Three high-voltage power lines were also disconnected.”
