The Russians arrested the director of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant

Igor Murashov was stopped by Russian troops. This was made known by Petro Kotin, president of the Ukrainian atom agency Energoatom and responsible for the management of nuclear plants in the country.

Russian troops allegedly arrested the director general of the Ukrainian nuclear power plant in Zaporizhzhia, Igor Murashov, taking him to an unknown location. This was announced by Petro Kotin, president of the Ukrainian agency Energoatom, responsible for the management of nuclear plants in the country.

“His car was stopped, on the road between the plant and the city of Energodar; Murashov was forcibly restrained, blindfolded and taken to an unknown location. At the moment, there is no information on his whereabouts and his conditions, “said Kotin as reported by the Energoatom Telegram channel.

Yesterday Russian President Vladimir Putin formalized the annexation of the four Ukrainian regions to Russia (the self-proclaimed People’s Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk and the regions of Kherson (Eastern Ukraine) and Zaporizhzhia (Southern Ukraine). , at least according to the Kremlin, territory of the Federation. The annexation was condemned by the international community which did not recognize it as legitimate, for the UN it is a “dangerous escalation, while US President Biden speaks of” lack of consultations. of legitimacy “.

After yesterday’s triumphal celebrations, Moscow plans to have the annexes ratified by the two branches of parliament by next week. From that moment on, any attack on the four Ukrainian territories for the Kremlin will represent an attack on Russian territory and therefore a legal pretext to threaten the use of nuclear weapons to protect Russian territory. Spokesman Dmitrij Peskov also reiterated this, even though he tried to dampen the nuclear threat.
