He said that if this level falls below 12.7 meters, water cannot be pumped to supply the nuclear power plant’s cooling system. But he added: the remaining water in the tank is enough.for some time after“They can cool the reactors with it. In addition, the cooling basin near the nuclear power plant is full of water, which is enough for a few months,” he added. It is crucial that the latter remain intact.

Although the reactors of the Zaporizhzhya NPP are closed, the heating elements still have to be constantly cooled to prevent a meltdown of the reactor core, which
