Today, September 1, at 4:57 a.m., as a result of another mortar shelling by the Russian occupying forces at the site of the Zaporizhzhia NPP, the emergency protection was activated and the operating 5th power unit was shut down.
On the eve of the visit of the IAEA mission, the occupiers resorted to new provocations at the ZNPP. In addition, the 330 kV ZAES-330 kV backup power supply line for its own needs was damaged. In the transitional mode, the non-working power unit No. 2 was de-energized with the start-up of diesel generators.
Russian propaganda tells about some “mythical landing” of Ukrainian paratroopers on boats, because of which they bombard the city with mortars and attack helicopters. In particular, they hit a planned route of the IAEA visit.
However, it makes no sense for the Armed Forces of Ukraine to capture the station if the surrounding area is under enemy control. At the same time, it is profitable for the Russians to blackmail the world and bring the situation to a farce, shifting the responsibility to the Ukrainian side.
We will remind you that this is not the first Russian attack on Enerhodar. Previously, the city was shelled on a large scale on August 29, and there was also a large-scale shelling from the Russian side on August 6.
Therefore, the Center of National Resistance calls for immediate evacuation from the temporarily occupied territories, so as not to become a human shield for the enemy.
