The Russian patrol forcefully detained the general director of the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant


According to Kotin, the incident took place on Friday. It is still unknown where Murašov is and what his fate is. The detention of the director, who bears the main responsibility for the plant’s nuclear and radiation safety, creates a danger in the operation of Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, Kotin warned. At the same time, he called on the Russians to immediately fire the director and to stop “nuclear terrorism against the management and employees” of the plant.

Kotin also approached the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Rafael Grossi, to advocate for Murašov’s release. “We have contacted the Russian authorities and are asking for an explanation,” an IAEA spokesman told Reuters.

Russia has not publicly commented on the issue.

The Russians took possession of the Zaporozhye power plant at the beginning of March, shortly after their military invasion of Ukraine. Both sides accuse each other of shelling the power plant, and the head of the IAEA is seeking to create a protection zone around the entire site.
