Damage to many apartments and industrial establishments
Kyiv At least three Ukrainian civilians were killed in Ukraine (Russia-Ukraine War) in the last 24 hours, while 23 others were injured. The President’s Office of Ukraine gave this information on Tuesday. According to the information, Russia also opened fire near a nuclear plant under its control. Dnipropetrovsk governor Valentin Reznichenko said the Russian military fired more than 120 rockets from the Grad multiple rocket launcher in the southern city of Nikopol. The city is located on the banks of the Dnieper River near the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant.
He said several apartments and industrial establishments were damaged in the shelling. Ukraine and Russia have recently accused each other of shelling near Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, the Zaporizhia Nuclear Plant, increasing the risk of a nuclear accident. In his nightly video address, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky referred to the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine. At that time Ukraine was part of the then Soviet Union.
Demand for new sanctions on Russia
He called for new sanctions on Russia to ‘create a risk’ of another nuclear accident. “We are actively notifying the world about Russia’s nuclear blackmail strategy,” Zelensky said. We are telling the world about Russia’s continued targeting of the Zaporizhia nuclear plant.” He added, “Russia will ignore words and concerns. The Chernobyl disaster was caused by an explosion in a reactor. Six at the Zaporizhia nuclear plant.” There are power generation plants.” Earlier on Monday, the Kremlin claimed that the Ukrainian military was attacking the Zaporizhia nuclear plant. He also appealed to Western countries to put pressure on Kyiv to stop the attack.
