Anti-aircraft defence around Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant will be beefed up – RIA cites Russian-backed official

(Reuters) – Anti-aircraft defences around the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant will be strengthened following days of reported shelling on the site, the RIA Novosti news agency quoted a Russian-installed separatist official as saying on Monday.

Yevgeny Balitsky, head of the Russian-backed administration in Ukraine’s southern Zaporizhzhia region also said the nuclear station, Europe’s largest, was working normally and damaged power lines have been restored.

Both Kyiv and Moscow have blamed each other for attacks on the power station, located in Russian-controlled territory, over recent days.
