War in Ukraine: Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant cut off from the electricity grid by Russian bombing, according to Kyiv

Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant has been disconnected from the country’s power grid after Russian bombing destroyed its last high-voltage power lines, officials say.

Ukraine’s atomic energy company Energoatom previously warned that Russia’s efforts to cut the Zaporizhzhia power plant from the grid risked a catastrophic failure of its cooling systems.

The power plant only has 15 days of fuel to run the generators, Energoatom said. Blocks 5 and 6 of the factory are being put in a cold state, he said.

Earlier, world leaders called for the demilitarization of the Zaporizhzhia site after footage emerged of Russian army vehicles parked inside the plant.
