russians use Zaporizhzhia NPP as military base

Petro Kotin, Acting President of Energoatom National Nuclear Energy Company made this statement at a briefing at Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.

“Even in peacetime Zaporizhzhia NPP is a well-fortified facility with a good surveillance system, fencing, special shelters for staff and large lounges. This station has dining rooms and other necessary facilities where a large number of people can be accommodated. Therefore, it is a perfect military base.
