A Ukrainian soldier was photographed in Chernobyl after the withdrawal of Russian troops.

Officials this morning confirmed that the northern Prypiat region is back under Ukrainian control after it was seized by Russia at the start of Vladimir Putin’s illegal invasion.

The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine wrote today: “Yes, today, on April 3.

“We continue to conduct combat missions! Together to victory! Honor to the DSHW! Glory to Ukraine!”

The country’s General Staff of the Armed Forces announced in a military update on Friday that several units of Russian armed forces were withdrawn from the Chernobyl district to settlements on the territory of Belarus.

On Friday, The Mirror reported that a Russian soldier was killed by radiation from the damaged Chernobyl nuclear power plant after his unit camped in a toxic forest.

The soldier was part of a team that captured the power plant in the early days of the war before occupying the 20-mile exclusion zone around it.

They dug trenches in radioactive sludge and their trucks kicked up radioactive dust as they drove over dirt roads.

Russian forces occupied the disused power plant after entering Ukraine on February 24, but Ukraine’s state-owned nuclear power company, Energoatom, said Thursday they had exited the power plant and were on their way to the border with Belarus.

“Russians were seen in the exclusion zone this morning,” Yevhen Kramarenko, head of the authority responsible for the exclusion zone, said in television commentary on Friday.
