The Russian occupiers are demanding that the administration of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant open machine rooms at the power units for them to place their equipment and weapons there.

This was reported by the press service of Energoatom.

“The military of the Russian Federation demand that the administration of the Ukrainian nuclear power plant open machine rooms for them at the 1st, 2nd and 3rd power units of the ZNPP in order to place their entire military arsenal there. APU,” the statement said.

They want to drive tanks, trucks, weapons with ammunition and the like into the turbine halls.

“Having placed their ‘trash’ there, the rashists will block the access of fire equipment to three power units. And in the event of a fire, the risk of which will increase many times over, its extinguishing will be extremely problematic, because specialized transport simply will not be able to drive up,” Energoatom noted.

It is noted that in this way the Russian invaders violate all the norms and requirements for nuclear and radiation safety of nuclear power plants, because they plan to store weapons and explosives right in the engine rooms of the power units of Europe’s largest nuclear power plant.

Energoatom once again calls on the international community to take all possible measures to liberate the Ukrainian ZNPP from the enemy, because the security of not only Ukraine, but the whole world is at stake! And Russian rashists, both military and from Rosatom, should get out of the energy pearl of Ukraine, its satellite city of Energodar and in general from our land,” the ministry added.

  1. Back in April, Bill Browder said that putler is the most evil man in the world and has terrible things planned. I can’t find the exact quote because it was in a video. But he said this to Politico: “Vladimir Putin is not going to back down and Ukrainians are not going to give up their country. This war will, unfortunately, be a long-lasting war in which many more atrocities will be committed, many more heartbreaks will happen and Russia will become even more isolated than they already are in the international community.”

    This would appear to be a preparation for a nuclear threat fallback option if his orcs are being pushed back. What options does the civilised world have available? Quite a lot actually. How about doing something proactively for once?
