(Reuters) – Ukraine state energy company Energoatom said the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power complex was shelled on Thursday, putting the blame on Russian forces that seized the area in March.

Energoatom said the plant’s area was struck five times, including near the site where radioactive materials are stored, but that nobody was injured and the situation at the plant remained under control.
