The Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine is still under Russian control and will remain so, the Kremlin stated on November 28, after a Ukrainian official suggested Russian forces were preparing to leave, Reuters says.

The head of Ukraine’s state-run nuclear energy company said on November 27 there were signs that Russian forces might be preparing to vacate Europe’s biggest nuclear plant, which they seized in March, soon after invading Ukraine. The Kremlin dismissed the statement.
