The Russians were never able to get most of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant staff to agree to cooperate.
Yes, the occupiers demand that the station’s workers sign a contract with Rosatom, but most refuse to work for the enemy. The Russians cannot expel these people, because they do not have free specialists in this field.
Therefore, the enemy still has not taken the station under their control. Even the kidnapping of workers and other repressions does not help. Therefore, the occupiers extended the deadline for concluding contracts until April 1, hoping to correct the situation.
It should be noted that the occupiers previously blocked access to the station for almost 1,500 Ukrainian employees of the ZNPP. Currently, the Russians can neither start up nor operate the power units of the station.
