Situation report day 184

By Jordi Bou

August 26, 2022 - President Zelenskiy said the world narrowly avoided a radiation disaster as the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant was disconnected from Ukraine’s grid due to Russian shelling, allegations that Moscow denied.

Zelenskiy said Russian shelling on Thursday sparked fires in the ash pits of a nearby coal power station that disconnected the reactor complex, Europe's largest such facility, from the power grid. A Russian official said Ukraine was to blame.

Radiation levels nearby remained normal despite the Zaporizhzhia nuclear complex losing its main power supply, local officials reported.

There is growing concern over fighting near the complex, which is the largest nuclear plant in Europe.
