The inspection of women by the occupiers at the checkpoint of the Zaporizhzhya NPP became real torture.
“Previously, women were treated more loyally during the check-up at the checkpoint of the ZNPP, but now their morning check-up and check-up at the checkpoint is a daily ordeal.
But our women are the bravest in the world. Such an incident happened at the beginning of May. Our girls were leaving their shift, and Rosatom employees decided to court them. They responded very sharply to this. After that there was a large-scale shmon. And we received letters telling us how to communicate with the Russians,” he said.
According to an employee of the ZNPP, the station’s staff is depressed.
“We live in an occupation without normal communication, without shops, ATMs, civilization. We buy food from the trunks of cars in the markets. People feel constant fear. We walk past the Russian military every day. If there are no complaints against us, they do not touch us.” – he added.
We will remind you that the Zaporizhzhya NPP in Energodar has been occupied by Russian troops since March 4.
The station continues to work under the leadership of “Energoatom” on the energy system of Ukraine, but not at full capacity, because many lines around it are damaged. Communication with the staff is available around the clock. At the same time, the occupiers fully control security at the ZNPP: staff access to workplaces, passage/exit to the station. Workers report regular cases of abuse by Russians against them. In particular, employees were denied access to the shelter.
Recently, the Russian military has been consistently shelling the territory of the station. “Energoatom” warns that shelling is carried out to destroy the infrastructure, disconnect from the energy system of Ukraine and cut off the south of our country. Talks about reconnecting the ZNPP to the RF power grid were conducted by the occupiers from the beginning.
August 8 the occupiers announced that they were mining the Zaporizhia NPP and were ready to blow it up. Ukraine sent letters to the UN and the IAEA with a demand to send a security mission to the ZNPP.
On August 11, a meeting of the UN Security Council regarding the situation at the Zaporizhia NPP was held in New York. The meeting was called at the request of Russia due to shelling of the ZNPP allegedly by the Ukrainian military.
The representative of Ukraine called before the demilitarization of the station for the visit of the IAEA mission, but the permanent representative of the Russian Federation did not support this proposal.
