Ukrainian forces have been repeatedly shelling the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant which is in Energodar, thereby raising the risk of a nuclear catastrophe.
Ukraine attacked the city of Energodar in the Zaporozhye region with drones on 11 September, the head of Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom, Alexey Likhachev, said on Tuesday, adding that two drones were downed.

"There was a massive drone attack on the city of Energodar [on Monday]. Six airstrikes were recorded around 18.00 local time. Two drones were eliminated on approach, four struck," Likhachev told reporters on the sidelines of the ongoing Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Vladivostok.

Kiev's actions are designed to intimidate the city's residents and employees of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant further, the Rosatom head said.
The technological safety of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant is fully guaranteed, but there is a risk of attacks on it from Kiev, he added.
