(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 25 – Russia has developed a detailed plan to disconnect the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, the largest in Europe, from the Ukrainian electricity grid, thus risking a catastrophic failure of the cooling systems: he said it Petro Kotin, president of the Ukrainian atomic agency Energoatom, in an interview with the Guardian.

World leaders, the newspaper recalls, have asked for the site to be demilitarized after the publication of footage of Russian army vehicles inside the plant and previously warned Moscow not to disconnect it from the Ukrainian network to connect it to the Russian one.

Kotin, however, said Russian engineers had already worked out a switching plan to be implemented in the event of a war-related emergency. “They presented (the plan) to the employees of the plant and they presented it to us. The prerequisite for this plan was the severe damage to all the lines connecting the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant to the Ukrainian system,” continued Kotin. fear that Russian forces are now targeting these connections to turn the emergency scenario into reality.
