Russia’s armed forces have seized control of the Zaporozhskaya and Chernobylskaya nuclear power stations in Ukraine. A fire broke out the Zaporozhskaya plant last Thursday after it received artillery fire.

In response to Macron's concern about the  nuclear power plants, Putin said radiation  in both areas is still at normal levels.  While Russia now controls the area around the plants, Ukrainian workers are still operating the nuclear reactors at the plants.
