According to British secret services, actions by the Russian armed forces are highly likely to endanger the security of the Ukrainian nuclear power plant Zaporizhia.

Moscow's intentions regarding the largest nuclear power plant in Europe are "still unclear" five months after the start of the Ukraine war, the British Ministry of Defense said in an update on Friday (5 August).

Russia is said to be using artillery units in the areas adjacent to the power plant to attack Ukrainian regions west of the Dnipro River.

They may have used the high-security status of the power plant site to protect themselves and their equipment from Ukrainian counterattacks at night, sources said.
