Russia stopping Zaporizhzhia NPP will bring closer radiation catastrophe scenario, Ukraine’s state nuclear agency Energoatom said in a statement.

If ZNPP generators are disconnected from the Ukrainian power grid they won’t be able to cool nuclear fuel if power supply to station is cut off.

Earlier, the Russian Army threatened to stop the Zaporizhzhia NPP.
