Russia fires rockets at Ukraine nuclear plant during Chernobyl anniversary

The Russian military fired rockets at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant.

The operator of the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, “Energoatom”, announced on Tuesday at 6.41am and 6.46am that two missiles of Russian troops of the same name flew over the site in the direction of the city. Then rockets exploded from the city.

“Missiles flying at low altitudes directly on the NPP base, which has seven nuclear facilities with high levels of nuclear material, pose the greatest risk. Above all, rockets can strike one or more nuclear power plants, and this could pose a threat of nuclear and radiation catastrophe worldwide,” he said. Codeine said.

This event takes place precisely on the anniversary of the nuclear disaster Chernobyl (April 26, 1986, near the Ukrainian city of Pripyat).

The IAEA sees this as a blatant violation of the basic rules for the safe operation of a nuclear power plant.

It is said that from March 13, at least the automatic data transfer from the nuclear plant to the IAEA will resume.

About 400 Russian soldiers are said to be currently at the power plant. In addition, experts from the Russian state-owned company Rosatom have come to assess the safety of the system and make any repairs.
