Nuclear Warning – World Braces For Radioactive CATASTROPHE
(TargetLiberty.org) – Ukraine’s nuclear agency has warned there’s a risk of radiation leaks at Europe’s largest atomic power station. The Zaporizhzhia plant has been occupied by Russian troops since March, but fighting is still ongoing around the facility. Now, the damage is starting to mount up, and experts are getting worried.

An August 27 statement by the Ukrainian agency Energoatom warned that Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) has been damaged by artillery fire this month, and the damage is now serious enough that there’s a risk of a nuclear accident. According to the statement, a hydrogen leak is possible, along with “sputtering” of radioactive substances, and there’s a high risk of fire. Hydrogen is extremely flammable and can ignite with explosive force, so if there is a leak, it could cause a blast that might seriously damage the plant — and lead to a far worse situation.
Russia regularly accuses Ukraine of shelling ZNPP, while Ukraine says Russia is sheltering military equipment there and using it as a base for attacks. New photos show damage to the roof of a fuel storage building, which Russia says was caused by a Ukrainian missile. If the plant suffers a major disaster it could blanket much of Ukraine, and possibly other Eastern European countries, with radioactive fallout. If it happens, current wheat shortages could get a lot worse — and that’s just the start.
