In an interview with TASS, he specified that reaching full capacity would be expedient after the liberation of the entire territory of the region.

At the moment, the main task is not to interrupt the main cycle at the nuclear power plant.

“We still provide Ukraine with electricity: we supply it to Zaporozhye and the cities of the Dnipropetrovsk region (Nikopol and Marganets) ... We simply cannot turn them off, although, if I had my way, they would have been cut off long ago.

After all, this is not for people, they need some energy, it is used for the operation of factories,” he said.

Earlier, the head of Energodar, Andrey Shevchik, on the air of the Rossiya 24 TV channel, said that the Zaporizhzhya NPP was operating normally.
