Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant has been seized by Russian military forces, after a fire sparked by overnight shelling burned for several hours at the largest facility of its kind in Europe. The blaze, located in a training building on the site’s perimeter, started early on Friday and was later extinguished. However, it was confirmed there had been no release of radiation.
The Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, appealed directly to Russian citizens on Friday to stage protests over the seizure of nuclear power infrastructure by Russian troops in Ukraine.
