On the very first day (well, arguably) of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Russian forces took control of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant and ghost city, as well as Pripyat.

I fail to see how is this so strategic for a first-day goal. Is it only their proximity to Kiev and the border to friendly Belarus? Is there nuclear material that can be reused by Russia? Is there anything else still useful in the cities?
