Russia has arrested Igor Murashov, general director of the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, located under Russian control in southern Ukraine. It has been denounced by the Ukrainian atomic energy company, Energoatom.
Russia has confirmed to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that its soldiers took Igor Murashov away on Friday for questioning, without explaining what.
The plant, the largest in Europe, has been occupied by Russian troops since March 4 and has been the object of several bombings in recent months, of which kyiv and Moscow accuse each other, which has raised alarms in the face of a possible nuclear accident. .
Zaporizhia, in southeastern Ukraine, is one of four regions that Russia annexed on Friday.
