Russia Shells Ukraine Nuclear Plant

Ukraine’s President Zelenskyy stated Russia “endangers the whole world” with its shelling of nuclear facilities. Ukraine has been forced to shut down all of a nuclear plant’s reactors as a result of constant shelling by Russia. Russian troops attacked a nuclear plant with shells reported to have landed 300 meters away from the reactor building, damaging several nearby buildings within the plant. A nearby hydro-electric power plant and power cable were also damaged. The power station’s 3 reactors have not been damaged and are working normally. Western authorities have repeatedly called on Russia to stop strikes against nuclear facilities.
