Russia says it foiled Ukrainian attempt to seize nuclear plant
Sept 3 (Reuters) - Ukrainian forces attempted to capture the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in an attack on the facility on Friday night, Russia's defence ministry said in its daily briefing on Saturday.
The ministry said a Ukrainian naval force of more than 250 troops attempted to land on the coast of a lake near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine at around 23:00 local time (2000 GMT) on Friday.
Russia said its forces foiled the attack using military helicopters and fighter jets.
