Apparently, nearby fires interfered with overhead power lines, disconnecting the now Russian-controlled site from the national grid for the first time ever. The plant, reportedly, continues to be powered by a local thermal plant.
It comes amid growing concern over fighting near the complex, which is the largest nuclear plant in Europe.
