The units of Russia's Airborne Forces (known for the Russian initials as VDV) have taken full control of the territory in the area of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, Major General Igor Konashenkov, an official representative for the Ministry of Defense said.
An agreement was reached with servicemen of a separate battalion that protects the nuclear power plant of Ukraine to ensure joint security of the power units and the sarcophagus of the station.
"The radioactive background in the area of the nuclear power plant is normal. NPP personnel continue to service NPP facilities in the normal mode while monitoring the radioactive background,” Konashenkov emphasized.
The joint actions of the military personnel guarantee that nationalist formations or other terrorist organizations will not be able to organize provocations under the current circumstances.
Bodies of military personnel with American and Polish chevrons on uniforms were found in Avdiivka, adviser to the head of the Donetsk People's Republic said
