The invaders continue placing mines at Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant and objects located within the territory of the plant. Now, they are delivering mines and explosives to the territory of Zaporizhzhia NPP.

The occupiers installed mine and explosive barriers, consisting of remotely controlled and unguided directional type anti-personnel landmines, in industrial premises and engine rooms.

russians mostly use the soviet-standard directional type mines, such as MON-50, MON-90, MON-100 and MON-200.
