In case of an accident at the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, some 400,000 people from Zaporizhzhya and Dnipro regions will be subject to mandatory evacuation.
This was announced by the head of the Zaporizhzhya Regional Administration Oleksandr Starukh.
"If we take 50 km zone of mandatory resettlement, which can occur as a result of an accident at the nuclear power plant in Energodar, it is over 200 thousand in our region and about 200 thousand in the neighboring Dnipropetrovsk region," - he said.
He noted that residents of Nikopol, Marganets, Energodar, Vasilivka, Dniprodzerzhynsk and other settlements will be evacuated.
He also added that it is very important to fully implement measures to protect the civilian population, because part of the territory is occupied.
Oldrukh added that now the radioactive situation in the AES is stable.
We would like to remind you that the UN is ready to support the IAEA mission to the Zaporizhzhya NPP, if the Ukrainian and Russian sides agree to it.
Earlier, the EU and Ukraine's allied countries urged Russia to withdraw its troops from the territory of the WEU. The EU also called on Russia to demilitarize the territory of the station.
In addition, Energoatom noted that the plant continues to operate at risk of violating radiation and fire safety standards.
