Ukraine's state nuclear company said that Russian shelling of the plant last week and over ten "arrivals" close to a power unit at the plant "caused a serious risk to the safe operation of the plant." As a result of the attacks, "the emergency protection on one of the power units was activated and one of the three operating power units is now disconnected," Energoatom said.
