The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine appealed to the Belarusians not to allow themselves to be involved in Russia’s war against Ukraine and warned of a possible terrorist attack at the Belarusian nuclear power plant.

Ukraine’s Rovno, Khmelnitsky and South Ukraine nuclear power plants and the Zaporozhye NPP lost external power for the first time ever on Wednesday, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Rafael Grossi said in a video statement on Thursday.

The first reactor of Ukraine's Khmelnytskyi nuclear plant has been reconnected to the country's power grid, regional governor Serhiy Hamaliy said.

The Khmelnytskyi plant disconnected from Ukraine's grid on Wednesday after Russian strikes on the country's power system, Ukrainian officials said. (Reporting by Aleksandar Vasovic, writing by Max Hunder; Editing by Jon Boyle)

Ukrainian troops have shelled Europe’s biggest nuclear power plant over the last two days, Renat Karchaa, an adviser at Russia’s state nuclear operator Rosenergoatom, claimed on Sunday.

Karchaa said the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant was targeted earlier in the day, following a barrage fired at the facility on Saturday, when six projectiles hit the cooling system of one of the rectors and two struck the radioactive waste storage. He added that the employees were unharmed.
