As many as eight Ukrainian combat drones have been intercepted over Europe’s largest nuclear power plant located in Zaporizhzhia, Russia’s defense ministry has claimed.

"Attempts by the Armed Forces of Ukraine to strike at the territory of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) with eight kamikaze drones were prevented. All Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles were shot down outside the territory of the nuclear plant," Russian MoD spokesman Igor Konashenkov said during a briefing on Sunday.

Konashenkov also clarified that the radiation situation at the Zaporozhye NPP is normal.

At the same time, Russian artillery thwarted attempts of the offensive of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the direction of Maryinka in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR). "Precise fire strikes by Russian artillery thwarted attempts of the offensive by the 79th Air Assault Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the direction of the settlement of Marinka in the Donetsk People's Republic. The enemy's losses reached over 50 militants," Konashenkov said.
