Zelensky: Russians “placed explosives” at Zaporizhia nuclear power plant. What am I looking for?

On the side of a possible incident at the nuclear power plant in Zaporozhye, which has been occupied by Russian troops since the beginning of the war, the war of declarations in Ukraine is gaining momentum.

On Tuesday evening, President Zelensky said the Russians had placed explosives on the roof of the plant, while Russian media spoke of a kamikaze drone attack Kiev was preparing.

Local residents are preparing to leave, and unconfirmed sources say the Russians have withdrawn some troops occupying the plant and the nearby town of Energodar.
