Security has been tightened at Ukraine's Zaporizhia and Chernobyl nuclear power plants after anonymous bomb threats, the country's state committee on nuclear regulation said on Wednesday.

The committee's press service said that the plant's premises and territory had been searched and no bomb had been found.

"Officers of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry and Security Service are guarding the NPPs," the press service said.

The Zaporizhia nuclear plant with an installed generating capacity of 6,000 megawatt is the biggest energy facility in Ukraine and Europe. It generates about 50% of electricity produced by Ukraine’s nuclear plants and accounts for more than 22% of the aggregate electricity generation in the country.
