Ukraine accuses Russia of spreading ‘nuclear terror’ and shelling a power plant – National

Ukraine said on Sunday that renewed Russian shelling damaged three radiation sensors and injured a worker at the Zaporizhia power plant, in the second hit in consecutive days on Europe’s largest nuclear facility.

Ukraine’s chief war crimes prosecutor said nearly 26,000 alleged war crimes committed since the invasion were being investigated, with 135 people charged, 15 of whom are in custody. Russia denies attacks on civilians.

Across Ukraine, a proxy battle was playing out at the International Chess Federation, with former Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich winning a second term as president and defeating Ukrainian Andrii Baryshpolets.

And after days of controversy, Amnesty International apologized for “dismay and anger” caused by a report accusing Ukraine of endangering civilians. This enraged Zelenskyy, prompting the head of the human rights group’s Ukraine office to resign.
