Russia has taken control of Ukraine, Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, after the shelling.
A fire broke out at midnight last night after the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant came under fire.
Officials at the plant say the facility is now safe and has a normal level of radiation.
World leaders have accused Russia of endangering the security of the entire European continent, and the Ukrainian president has accused Russia of “nuclear terrorism.”
US President Joe Biden also called on Moscow to suspend military operations around the site.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also said that “terrible attacks by Russia” should be stopped immediately.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the attack “reckless”, which could “directly threaten the security of the whole of Europe”.
All three spoke by telephone with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelinsky.
Mr Zelensky, meanwhile, said Russia wanted a repeat of Chernobyl, the worst nuclear disaster in the world in 1986.
“If there is an explosion, it is the end of everything and the end of Europe,” he said.
