According to the same source, the strike blew out about 100 windows in the power station building and caused a brief disconnection of three high-voltage lines at the power station. “Russia puts the whole world at risk. We must stop it until it’s too late“, launched on Telegram to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who broadcast a black-and-white surveillance video showing a massive explosion.
