Fears Of Nuclear Disaster As Ukraine Vows To Attack Russia Troops

872

Yesterday, when Ukraine threatened to strike Russian forces for their refusal to evacuate a nuclear plant they had seized, fears of a second Chernobyl increased dramatically.

As the invaders reject requests to demilitarize the danger zone, nuclear energy chiefs have warned that there is a serious chance of a disaster at Zaporizhzhia in the country’s southeast.

Russia and Ukraine both accuse the other of firing shells at the massive facility, which houses the biggest atomic power plant in Europe.

The Russian military there had turned into a prime target, according to Volodymyr Zelensky, who also accused them of nuclear blackmail.

If they continue to shoot at people, the president of Ukraine warned, his army would have no choice but to strike them.

In March, Russian soldiers overran the location. There are presently 500 people stationed there, and Ukrainian technicians are still operating reactors.

174 containers containing radioactive material, according to Petro Kotin, the head of the company running the factory, were in jeopardy of being struck.

He forewarned that there may be a radiation cloud in 2e. The danger is really great.

There are worries that a stray shell may trigger a catastrophe worse than the Chernobyl accident of 1986, which occurred 400 miles distant and claimed at least 31 lives while spreading a radioactive cloud across Europe.

“Every Russian soldier who shoots at the plant or shoots using the plant as cover must understand he becomes a special target for our intelligence agents, for our special services, for our army,” according to President Zelensky.
