Russians Release Director of Ukraine’s Largest Nuclear Power Plant
The Russians have released the director of the largest Ukrainian nuclear power plant, that of Zaporizhzhya. The boss of the Russian-occupied complex was arrested last week.
Director Ihor Murashov is said to have been taken from a car and taken away blindfolded by Russian soldiers.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said that Russia had informed the UN watchdog that Murashov had been temporarily detained to ask him questions. According to the IAEA, he has returned safely to his family.
The Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant is located on the south bank of the Dnieper River. It is the largest in Europe and has been owned by Russia since the beginning of March.
The IAEA warns that the situation in and around the plant is dangerous due to shelling and bombing. Kyiv and Moscow accuse each other of targeting the complex.
