Russians stationed at the occupied Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) in southern Ukraine are “gradually leaving,” the Ukrainian Defense Intelligence Directorate said Friday.
It did not specify whether it was referring to the Kremlin’s troops there, or just to employees of the state-run nuclear company Rosatom.
“The occupiers are reducing their presence at the ZNPP,” it said in a Telegram post.
“According to the most recent data, the occupation contingent is gradually leaving the territory of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.”
Three employees of Russia's state-run nuclear company Rosatom, “were among the first to leave the plant,” it claimed, adding that, Ukrainian employees who had signed a contract with Rosatom were also advised to leave for Russian-occupied Crimea.
