Nuclear blackmail by Russia is gaining momentum. The International Atomic Energy Agency has already declared complete absence of control of the largest nuclear power plant in Europe, which is located in Enerhodar, Zaporizhzhia region, Ukraine. British intelligence concluded that following five months of occupation, Russia’s intentions regarding the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant remain unclear. At the same time, the Russian army, having deployed weapons near the nuclear power plant, fires daily at Nikopol, which is located on the opposite bank of the Dnipro river. The Ukrainian troops cannot answer to the shelling because of the threat of a nuclear accident.

The U.N. nuclear chief warned that Europe’s largest nuclear power plant in Ukraine “is completely out of control” and issued an urgent plea to Russia and Ukraine to quickly allow experts to visit the sprawling complex to stabilize the situation and avoid a nuclear accident.
Rafael Grossi, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said in an interview with The Associated Press that the situation is getting more perilous every day at the Zaporizhia plant in the southeastern city of Enerhodar, which Russian troops seized in early March, soon after their Feb. 24. invasion of Ukraine.
