Ukraine's Interior Minister said that Ukraine must be prepared for any scenario at Zaporizhzhia, the Russian-controlled nuclear power plant. This includes evacuating civilians from the affected area.

Russia and Ukraine-installed officials blamed one another for the latest round of shelling at the nuclear power station - Europe's largest - in southern Ukraine.

Interior Minister Denys Monastyrsky stated that the plant was not only in the enemy's hands but also in the hands of unqualified specialists who could allow for a tragedy.

He said: "Of course, it's hard to even imagine how terrible things could become if Russia continues their actions there."

Recent warnings from Ukraine have been made about the danger of a nuclear catastrophe in Chernobyl style.

"This means that we must be prepared for any situation. Monastyrsky said that the state emergency services, the interior ministry and regions ministry are discussing various scenarios, including evacuations.
