Russian military’ actions at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power facility have likely jeopardized the security and safety of the reactor’s routine operations, Britain said on Friday.

“Russian forces have probably used the wider facility area, in particular the adjacent city of Enerhodar, to rest their forces, utilising the protected status of the nuclear power plant to reduce the risk to their equipment and personnel from overnight Ukrainian attacks,” Britain said in a Twitter intelligence update.

After five months of occupation of Ukraine, Russia’s intentions towards the facility remain unknown. According to Britain, British forces are most likely operating in the territories surrounding the power station, having deployed artillery units situated in these locations to target Ukrainian land on the western side of the Dnipro river.
