Zaporizhzhia NPP still under Russian control - authorities

European largest nuclear power plant, Zaporizhzhia, remains under Russian control, the Russian-installed military-civilian administration of the city Energodar announced on its Telegram Channel on Monday.

"The media are actively spreading fakes that Russia is allegedly planning to withdraw from Energodar and leave the ZNPP. This information is not true," the administration said, slamming claims by the Head of Energoatom, Petro Kotin, that Russian forces were preparing to withdraw from the region. The Kremlin-appointed Energodar administration cited Moscow's plan to create a backup source of power supply for the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant as proof that Russian forces had not left the area.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) disclosed last week that four operating nuclear power reactors there have been connected to the country's national electrical network to make up for recent electricity outages in Ukraine.
