All 3 Ukraine-controlled nuclear plants cut from grid after massive Russian strikes

All three nuclear power plants still under Ukrainian control have been disconnected from the electricity grid, Ukraine’s nuclear operator says, after fresh Russian airstrikes hit the country.

Energoatom says in a statement that the strikes have activated emergency protocols at the Rivnenska, Pivdennoukrainska and Khmelnytska nuclear power plants and that “as a result… all reactors were automatically disconnected” from the electricity grid.
