The site had to be powered by generators. Although owned by the Russians, it is Ukrainian officials who keep the facility operational. Energoatom, the state agency responsible for controlling nuclear energy in Ukraine, called for “urgent action” to demilitarize the nuclear power plant

  • A recent “novelty” used by Russian troops is “suicide drones” to attack Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, and other locations in the country. The Iranianmade aircraft is difficult to detect, carries explosive payloads of up to 36 kg and is programmed via GPS to reach targets. In early October, Ukraine said it had managed to intercept 60% of all incoming Shahed136 drones.

  • According to Ukrainian President Volodmir Zelenskyy, Iranian drones attacked and about 30% of Ukraine’s power plants were destroyed by bombing. The country has even imposed restrictions on energy consumption and the government is working to create mobile power supply points for critical infrastructure. Over the past week, more than 1,000 Ukrainian sites have lost power due to Russian bombing. In the middle of winter, Russia began attacking Ukraine’s infrastructure, using the cold as a weapon of war, leaving millions of people without electricity and heating.

The event raised fears of a possible escalation of the conflict as Poland is a member of NATO, Article 5 of which establishes the “principle of collective defence” between members.
