In a serious escalation, Kiev forces shelled on March 14 the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), which is controlled by Russia.

The nuclear facility said in a statement posted to its official Telegram channel that critical infrastructure came under attack.

“An attack against critical infrastructure at the power plant was reported. A shell-less explosive device was thrown near the fence behind which diesel fuel tanks were stored. Had the tanks been hit, it could have caused dire consequences,” the statement reads.

Director of the Zaporizhzhia NPP, Yury Chernichuk, said in the same statement that none of the facility staff was injured in the attack, nor any equipment was damaged,

Experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) were recently rotated at the nuclear facility, according to the Zaporizhzhia NPP.

“[IAEA] inspectors were informed of the attack and potential consequences of such attacks,” the facility said, calling such attacks inadmissible.
