Zaporizhzhia NPP completely de-energized due to Russian shelling
At 3:53 am, the last line of the communication between the temporarily occupied Zaporizhzhia NPP and the Ukrainian power grid was cut off.
The plant was de-energized and went into blackout mode for the sixth time during the occupation.
18 diesel generators have been switched on to power the plant's own needs, with enough fuel for 10 days.
"If it is impossible to restore external power to the plant during this time, an accident with radiation consequences for the whole world may occur," Energoatom said.
All Ukrainian nuclear power plants located on the government-controlled territory have unloaded power due to the threat of missile attacks.
