Ukrainian instructors refused to cooperate with the enemy.
The Russian occupiers brought personnel from the Kalinin NPP to the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant.
This was reported by the press service of NAEK “Energoatom” in Telegram. “Personnel from the Kalinin NPP have arrived at the temporarily occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. Nuclear workers from the Russian Federation, the occupiers believe, will be able to work at the captured Ukrainian plant. Among the “tourists” are reactor control engineers, shift supervisors, electrical fitters and other representatives of nuclear specialties,” – the message says.
It is noted that the invaders promise them training on a “full-scale” simulator. But the Ukrainian instructors, who are supposed to teach at it, refused to work for the enemy, and so did the occupiers blocked their access to workplaces.
“One way or another, there is no way for Russian “guest workers” to improve their qualifications. However, they brag that they have been offered six-month contracts and offer to move their families to Energodar,” the company’s press service noted.
At the same time, traitors from the ZNPP who signed a contract with the fake JSC “Operating Organization of the Zaporizhzhya NPP” had their salaries significantly reduced. In addition, the collaborators were also announced the cancellation of work experience and vacations earned “for Ukraine”.
The situation at Zaporizhzhya NPP – what you need to know today
As UNIAN reported, the Zaporizhzhya NPP has been under the control of the Russian occupiers since March 4, 2022. Energodar, a satellite city of the nuclear power plant, was also captured. Since the beginning of the war, the ZNPP has been constantly shelled, as a result of which the station is regularly cut off.
On January 27, the General Staff reported that the occupiers are planning restoration work at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in order to supply power for the transit of electricity to Russia.
