“Taking into account the fact that the Zaporizhye nuclear plant is exposed to a bigger threat, security measures should be tighter there,” she told a briefing. “Key areas where security measures will be tightened are air defence and defence against tank attacks.”
She said that physical protection measures have been enhanced at all of Ukraine’s operating nuclear plants.
The Zaporozhye nuclear plant with an installed generating capacity of 6,000 megawatt is the biggest energy facility in Ukraine and Europe. It generates about 50% of electricity produced by Ukraine’s nuclear plants and accounts for more than 22% of the aggregate electricity generation in the country.
