China News Service, August 8. According to the TASS news agency reported on the 8th, the Russian embassy in the United States said that the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant was shelled threatening European nuclear security.
The Russian embassy in the United States responded on social media to the shelling of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, saying that the shelling damaged two high-voltage power lines and a water main.
The bombardment of nuclear power plants not only poses a threat to Ukrainian nuclear security, but "also poses a real threat to nuclear security in Europe."
