Rocket attack on Zaporizhia – at least 17 killed

Case numbers rise sharply in Scotland

At least 17 people have been killed in a Russian rocket attack on Zaporizhia overnight. “As a result of a night rocket attack on Zaporizhia, houses and roads were damaged in a residential area of ​​the city,” wrote Anatoly Kurtaev, secretary of the city administration on Telegram. “As of this writing, 17 people have died.”

Nuclear power plants rely on emergency generators

Since yesterday, following new attacks, the Ukrainian nuclear power plant in Zaporizhia has been completely cut off from the power grid and relies on diesel-powered emergency power generators.


International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief Rafael Grossi said the attacks, which “affected the plant’s only external power source,” were “highly irresponsible”. Although six reactors at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant are currently closed, they rely on electricity for cooling, among other things.

Ukraine’s nuclear power plant operator Enerhoatum said Russian shelling had “damaged and disrupted” the nuclear power plant’s previous electricity connections. The diesel generator on site will have enough fuel for at least ten days. Engineers have started repairing the power line.
