Russia claims it repelled attack on Zaporizhzhia plant

Russia has managed to fully repel Ukraine's attacks on the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), which is now operating normally, member of that region's main administrative council Vladimir Rogov told RIA Novosti on Sunday.

"The nuclear power plant itself was not damaged and is operating normally. The air defense of the Russian army once again covered the facility from the nuclear threat, which is constantly provoked by Ukrainian nationalists," he said.

His comments came after Russia accused Ukraine of shelling the power plant despite previously calling for it to be labeled a demilitarized zone.
