As Ukraine shells the largest nuclear power plant in Europe with Western supplied missiles, the West blames Russia for potentially the worst nuclear disaster in world history.
Over the last two weeks, the Ukrainian military has fired missiles and kamikaze drones upon the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant, the largest in Europe, alarming Russia, the UN, and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
According to the Russian envoy to the UN, a catastrophe at the Zaporozhye power plant – the biggest one in Europe – could lead to radioactive pollution of vast swathes of territory, affecting at least eight Ukrainian regions, including its capital, Kiev, major cities like Kharkov or Odessa, and some territories of Russia and Belarus bordering Ukraine. The Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics, as well as Moldova, Romania, and Bulgaria are likely to suffer as well, he warned.
“And these are the most optimistic expert forecasts,” he said.
Such a disaster would dwarf prior nuclear disasters such as Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, and Fukushima, and could quite possibly rival the damage done by the nuclear bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
While the UN and Russia have demanded that IAEA inspectors immediately be permitted to inspect the site, the regime in Kiev has so far blocked all attempts to access the facility. At the same time, Kiev and its Western allies have redirected the blame onto Russia for invading Ukraine and have demanded a full withdrawal from the country. The Zelensky regime has even gone as far as to spin that Russia is actually bombiong the site, which has been under Russian control since February, in order to “frame” Ukraine.
Given that Russia is not going to be withdrawing anytime soon, and will not be giving up control of the nuclear plant willingly, if Ukraine continues to shell Zaporozhye, it is only a matter of time before Europe becomes a nuclear wasteland for decades to come.
