The Russian army accuses Kyiv of shelling the territory of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant that it controls in southern Ukraine.

Kyiv “does not stop its provocations aiming at creating the threat of a man-made catastrophe at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant,” it says in a statement. Despite shelling on November 19 and 20, radiation levels “remain normal,” it adds.
