“A powerful explosion occurred just 300 m from the reactors of the South Ukraine NPP. The buildings of the NPP were damaged and over 100 windows were broken. One of the hydraulic units of the Oleksandrivska hydroelectric power plant, which is part of the South Ukraine Energy Complex, shut down. Three high-voltage power transmission lines also shut down.”
It is also noted that currently, all three power units of the South Ukraine NPP are operating normally. Fortunately, there were no casualties among the station staff.
