Russian bombing of nuclear plant; The world was saved from a major catastrophe due to the blackout

Kyiv: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said that the Russian bombing would have caused an explosion near Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, but luckily the power was cut off for hours at the same time and the world narrowly escaped radiation destruction.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky revealed that Russian shelling had ignited a fire in the ash pits of a nearby coal-fired power station, disconnecting the Zaporozhye plant from the power grid, according to the World News Agency.

Volodymyr Zelinsky further said that the nuclear power plant was cut off in this way and that the Russian bombardment was also going on at that time. If there was no accidental power cut, the nuclear plant would explode and the world would have to face radiation effects.
Ukraine’s president praised the nuclear plant’s technicians, saying backup diesel generators ensured power for the plant’s cooling and safety systems in the event of a power outage.

President Zelensky warned that Russia has put Ukraine and all Europeans in a situation where they are one step away from a radioactive disaster. As long as Russian troops remain at this nuclear power station, the risk of global radiation destruction will remain.

Energy for the plant’s own needs is now being supplied through a line from Ukraine’s power system to power one of the plant’s two operating reactors, state-run Ukrainian nuclear company Energovatm said. has been reconnected to the grid.

On the other hand, Volodymyr Rogov, an officer of the Russian army stationed in the occupied town of Enrhodar near the nuclear power plant, blamed the Ukrainian armed forces for the incident and said that the fire broke out in the forest near the plant because of the Ukrainian army.

It should be noted that Russia attacked Ukraine in February and took control of the nuclear plant in the following month of March, but the staff operating it are still Ukrainian.
