The Biggest NPP on the Brink of Disaster

The Russian army deploys military equipment 60 meters from a nuclear reactor

While the International Atomic Energy Agency is announcing that it may visit a nuclear facility in the captured Zaporizhzhia region in the coming days, the situation is becoming more critical. The president of Ukraine calls on the organization to intervene in the case and prevent the explosion of reactors. Russia also permitted the commission to visit the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant. But the IAEA is in no hurry, and the Russian military continues to violate the rules of operation of the facility. This is confirmed by British intelligence.

British intelligence reports that it has received satellite imagery from August 21, 2022, showing that Russia has installed armoured personnel carriers 60 meters from reactor number 5. Russian troops have deployed vehicles under hanging pipes and metal structures. Maybe the war criminals wanted to hide the cars in nuclear plants.

Also, on August 25, the occupiers set fire to a forest in the city where the largest nuclear facility in Europe is located. Due to the rapid spread of the flame, there was a short circuit. At noon the Russian military shelled the city, depriving it of water and light. The mayor of Energodar, Dmytro Orlov, is now figuring out how to restore communications in the city and how this affects the nuclear power plant.

Recall that the backup power was switched on at the nuclear facility because of the occupiers' actions.
