Russian soldiers have been killed and injured in a mysterious ‘unexplained incident’ at the occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine, it has been claimed.

Dmytro Orlov, the mayor of Enerhodar where the station is based, said the troops were ‘so scared that they ran around in a panic’, with some now in intensive care in hospital.

The cause of the sudden hysteria is not known, although Putin‘s men had been using the power plant to store many of their weapons, including missile systems.

The president of Ukrainian nuclear agency Energoatom had warned on Friday that the situation was ‘extremely tense’, with up to 500 Russian soldiers controlling the site.

‘The occupiers bring their machinery there, including missile systems, from which they already shell the other side of the river Dnipro and the territory of Nikopol,’ Petro Kotin said, referring to the city across the water.

‘They physically control the perimeter. The occupiers’ heavy machinery and trucks with weapons and explosives remain on the territory of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant,’ he said.

According to Mayor Orlov, nine soldiers were taken to the local hospital with varying degrees of severity.

He said: ‘One of them was brought in in a serious condition and has been put in intensive care.

‘Some have died but we cannot name their exact number at the moment.’
