In the Ukraine war, there is renewed fighting for the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant. Allegedly, a Ukrainian drone crashed on the nuclear power plant.

Enerhodar – The situation at the Russian-occupied Zaporizhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine continues to deteriorate. Several artillery shells reportedly fell in the town of Enerhodar, where the power plant employees live, on Sunday evening. Russia and Ukraine blamed each other for the shelling. Videos from both sides showed that numerous cars were burning in residential areas. A few hours earlier, Russian troops had allegedly shot down an armed Ukrainian drone directly over one of the six reactors.

As a further step in the escalation at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, the Russian occupation administration reported an alleged Ukrainian attack with a drone. The aircraft was shot down and fell on the containment shell over a reactor. The explosive charge detonated without causing any damage. This information has not been independently verified. It was assumed that the drone was intended to hit a spent fuel storage facility.

News about the Ukraine war: Nine people injured in Enerhodar

Nine people were injured, two of them seriously, by the nightly shelling of the city of Enerhodar, said Vladimir Rogov, a member of the occupation administration, on Monday night. With such steps, Ukraine wants to prevent experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) from visiting the nuclear power plant. The information could not be independently verified. The escaped Ukrainian mayor of Enerhodar, Dmytro Orlow, spoke of a provocation: Russian troops had fired. He accused Moscow of “nuclear blackmail” because Russian troops entrenched themselves in the nuclear power plant.

According to the authorities, the Rivne region in northern Ukraine was attacked with Russian rockets on Sunday evening. Two rockets also hit the center of the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv on Sunday evening, as Mayor Ihor Terekhov announced. An administration building was destroyed.

Ukraine War: Rockets hit Kharkiv

Dozens of places along the more than 2,000-kilometer-long front line have been shelled by Russian tanks, tube and rocket artillery, the Ukrainian General Staff said. Russian assaults were repelled in several places in the Donbass.

Russia continues to move towards annexation of the occupied territories in Ukraine through referendums. High-ranking Kremlin official Sergey Kiriyenko put out a number that said that in the pro-Russian separatist regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, 91 to 92 percent of the population were in favor of joining Russia. In the Cherson and Zaporizhia areas, which have been conquered since February, it is 75 to 77 percent. Kiriyenko was citing surveys in the region that allegedly showed these results. (mse/dpa)
