World’s largest nuclear power plant under heavy missile attack

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

And yes, the world’s largest nuclear plant is in Ukraine. It operates at SIX GIGAWATTS. And yes it was predictable as the Ukrainian leader publicly planned a 200,000 strong counter offensive right in that region. (Source)

First thing is first. The reactor itself is “out of control” and the UN Nuclear Chief has been begging both parties to let them in to fix it.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. nuclear chief warned that Europe’s largest nuclear power plant in Ukraine “is completely out of control” and issued an urgent plea to Russia and Ukraine to quickly allow experts to visit the sprawling complex to stabilize the situation and avoid a nuclear accident.

Rafael Grossi, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said in an interview Tuesday with The Associated Press that the situation is getting more perilous every day at the Zaporizhzhia plant in the southeastern city of Enerhodar, which Russian troops seized in early March, soon after their Feb. 24. invasion of Ukraine.

“Every principle of nuclear safety has been violated” at the plant, he said. “What is at stake is extremely serious and extremely grave and dangerous.”

Grossi cited many violations of the plant’s safety, adding that it is “in a place where active war is ongoing,” near Russian-controlled territory.

Moving forward to now:

Europe’s largest nuclear power plant is hit by MORE Russian rockets as Ukraine demands international sanctions on Moscow for ‘nuclear terror’

Ukraine has accused Russia of once again firing rockets at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant overnight and has called for new international sanctions on Moscow for ‘nuclear terror’, after the site was also struck by missiles on Friday leading to warnings of a ‘very real risk of a nuclear disaster’.

Moscow and Kyiv have been blaming each other for the bombings of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear site in southern Ukraine, which has been under Russian control since the early days of the February 24 invasion but is still run by Ukrainian technicians. The allegations have not been confirmed by independent sources.

Ukraine’s state nuclear energy company Enerhoatom that operates the plant said the ‘Russian occupiers once again fired rockets at the site of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant and the town of Enerhodar’, damaging three radiation sensors at the facility. […]

‘One… employee was hospitalised with shrapnel wounds caused by the explosion,’ it said in a statement.

The company added 174 containers with spent nuclear fuel were stored in the open air at the plant’s dry storage facility that was attacked.

‘Consequently, timely detection and response in the event of a deterioration in the radiation situation or leakage of radiation from containers of spent nuclear fuel are not yet possible,’ it said.

‘Russian nuclear terror requires a stronger response from the international community – sanctions on the Russian nuclear industry and nuclear fuel,’ Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy wrote on Twitter.
