'Danger of great tragedy': Russia issues warning over Ukraine's nuclear plant

Moscow. Russia has issued a warning about the Moscow-occupied Zaporizhzhya nuclear plant in Ukraine. He said that this plant is in danger. Russia has accused Ukraine’s party of putting Europe’s largest nuclear plant in the south of the country at risk, news agency DPA reported. Both sides have blamed each other for the shootings in Zaporizhia.

In the Uzbek capital Tashkent, Russian National Security Council secretary Nikolai Petrushev said Ukraine’s military was threatening the nuclear plant with US-supplied weapons. According to Interfax, at a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, he said, ‘If a tragedy happens, it will affect all the countries of the world. Washington, London and their puppet countries have to take responsibility.

A few days ago, a Russian Defense Ministry official warned that the ongoing attacks on Ukraine’s Russian-controlled Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant could be a disaster far greater for Europe than the current energy crisis. The head of Russia’s Nuclear Biological and Chemical Defense Forces, Igor Kirillov, described a possible worst-case scenario of a direct attack on Europe’s largest nuclear plant during a briefing on 18 August, RT reported.

The report said he blamed Ukraine’s Western supporters for trying to downplay the threat of targeting nuclear plants and for forgetting the lessons of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster and the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster. According to Kirillov, both disasters involved ‘failure of support systems, disruption of power supply and partial and complete shutdown of cooling systems, which led to nuclear fuel overflow and reactor destruction.
