“Now the ZNPP operates, according to my information, in the energy network of Ukraine, which operates synchronously with the Unified Energy Network of the EU. The personnel serving the NPP are Ukrainian personnel, who were there before February 24. There is the presence of Russian occupiers on the territory of the plant, there is the presence of representatives “Rosatom”, there are not many of them, about 10 people,” Orlov said.

And they began to be treated rather harshly, the personnel of the nuclear power plant began to leave Enerhodar for the unoccupied territory of the Zaporozhye region. To talk about how this will affect the security component, very difficult. People are in emotional stress, in constant stress, and they have no time to think about safety,” Orlov stressed.
