IAEA: All Ukraine-controlled nuclear power plants reconnected to the country's power grid

by The Kyiv Independent news desk November 25, 2022 6:53 PM 1 min read

Three Ukrainian-controlled nuclear power plants – Rivne, South Ukraine, and Khmelnytsky – have been reconnected to the power grid and are now operating to generate electricity for the country's needs, Ukraine confirmed to the International Atomic Agency on Nov. 25, according to IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi.

Power had also been restored to the Chornobyl site, the statement reads.

The power units at the plants were automatically disconnected from the power grid following Russia's Nov. 23 mass missile strikes on Ukraine.

It also caused blackouts in all Ukrainian regions and parts of neighboring Moldova.

The attack was Russia's fifth large-scale air strike targeting Ukraine's energy infrastructure. The previous ones took place on Oct. 10, Oct. 17, Oct. 31, and Nov. 15.

“We truly need popular support, especially during wartime. Being not dependent on a single money bag telling journalists what to do has always been quite a task in Ukraine. In wartime, that’s even more important.”
