Russian forces launched an offensive on Ukraine’s Zaporizhia nuclear power plant this morning, as the international community demanded that Russia stop its offensive. As a result, a sudden fire broke out at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, Europe’s largest nuclear power plant.
However, there were reports that Russian troops had stopped and shot dead Ukrainian firefighters before extinguishing the blaze. US President Joe Biden has called on Russia to immediately suspend its military operations at the Ukraine nuclear plant. He also stressed the need to immediately allow firefighters and emergency services in the area.
In this case, the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, which was attacked by Russian forces, is safe, its director said. The director of the reactor, Andrews, said the fire was brought under control by a Russian attack. He also said that at present, safety equipment is in place to prevent radiation. Similarly, “there is no indication that radiation levels have increased. We are monitoring the situation closely, “said David Cook, chief of The Christian Science Monitor’s Washington bureau.
Previously, the explosion of the Zaporizhia reactor would cause 10 times as much destruction as Chernobyl. It is noteworthy that on his Twitter page, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba called on Russia to immediately stop the attack and help firefighters bring the fire under control and ensure security.
