The Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK) said on Saturday that the safety of Zaporizhzhia, Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, has not been endangered.
STUK stated that it would base its assessment on information received from the Ukrainian authorities.
Russian forces attacked the plant early Friday, when a training facility near the reactor buildings caught fire. Rescue workers caused the fire to go out on Friday at six o’clock.
According to STUK, the radiation levels at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, at the site of the deadly nuclear disaster in 1986, are also normal.
In Finland, concerns about Russia’s attack on Ukraine have been reflected in the demand for iodine, which can prevent the absorption of radiation.
Demand for strong iodine tablets has been higher than usual since the beginning of the crisis in Ukraine, and stocks in several pharmacies have completely run out.
