Power supply to all cities and districts of the Zaporizhzhia region has been restored after earlier disruptions, according to the Russian-installed governor of occupied areas of Zaporizhzhia.
"As a result of a strike by the armed formations of Ukraine on power lines in the area of the Zaporizhzhia NPP, the territory of the security zone of the 750 kV overhead line caught fire. The fire was provoked by a short circuit on power lines," Yevhen Balytskyi claimed.
"The relay emergency protection of ZNPP worked, two power units were turned off, after which the Zaporizhzhia region was left without power supply," he added.
"Immediately after the fire was extinguished, one unit was put into operation. Work was underway to restore the power supply to the region and launch the second power unit," he explained.
The Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant has six reactors, but only two are operational at the moment.
