All Chornobyl NPP facilities located in the Exclusion Zone are under the military control of the aggressor country for the thirteenth day in a row, the Chornobyl NPP personnel has been courageously and heroically performing their functions without rotation to ensure the safe operation of the facilities.
Regulatory control over the state of nuclear and radiation safety at the Chornobyl NPP site and in the Exclusion Zone is currently impossible to exercise.
Operation of the Automated Radiation Monitoring System of the Exclusion Zone has not been restored yet.
According to the information received from the Chornobyl NPP personnel through available communication channels, safety parameters of the Chornobyl NPP facilities are still within the standard limits.
Stationary and cellular telephone connection with the Chornobyl NPP personnel currently working at the NPP site, has not been restored.
Railway and motor traffic with the Chornobyl NPP have not been restored.
Operation of the high-voltage line HVL-330 “Lisova” has not been restored either.
Scheduled activities, maintenance and repair of systems and equipment of the Chornobyl NPP facilities, which must be performed by the day-time personnel, is not be performed since 24 February 2022 due to the occupation. In addition, the activities to be performed with the involvement of
contracting organizations are not carried out.
This situation has already led to impossibility to restore the operation of individual neutron flux sensors, gamma radiation dose rate and radiation contamination sensors. The inoperability of the above equipment complicates exercising full control over the criticality and over a number of radiation parameters in one of the Shelter premises.
Available information on safety parameters indicates a trend of steady deterioration of a number of indicators, in particular, such as concentration of long-lived radionuclides in the atmosphere. The occupier continues to grossly violate the radiation safety and strict access control requirements at the enterprise and in the Exclusion Zone, which leads to deterioration of the radiation situation at the enterprise and in the Exclusion Zone, and contributes to the spread of radioactive contamination outside the Exclusion Zone.
