The consequences of an accident at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP), which is under Russian occupation, would be much worse than the one at Chornobyl in 1986.
Quote: “Employees understand that they need to evacuate their families, but they themselves are returning. They are working because there is a risk of a large-scale catastrophe, such as the one at Chornobyl in 1986. However, an accident at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) could be much worse.
Employees have returned to run the plant: the security of Ukraine, the entire European continent and the world is at stake.”
Details: According to the anonymous employee, the plant’s staff are annoyed by the very fact of the presence of heavily armed Russian military personnel at the nuclear power plant. In addition, the invaders are pointing weapons from armoured personnel carriers at workers when they enter the plant.
Quote: “They always carry weapons. It’s very difficult when you go to the plant and see these people and you have to be there. This is extremely difficult, morally and psychologically.
Only once the city, nuclear power plants, thermal power plants, Zaporizhia, Kherson oblasts and others are fully liberated will people really be safe.”
