Ukraine: Stop fighting near nuclear plant, minister urges Russia

The Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba, has urged Russia to cease firing near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

“The Russian army is firing from all sides upon Zaporizhzhia NPP, the largest nuclear power plant in Europe.

“Fire has already broken out; if it blows up, it will be ten times larger than Chornobyl.

“Russians must immediately cease the fire, allow firefighters, establish a security zone,” Kuleba wrote in a tweet, on Friday.

NAN reported that the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine on April 26, 1986, remains one of the world’s worst nuclear energy disasters.

After the explosion of a reactor block at the nuclear power plant, radioactive substances spread over large parts of Europe for several days, according to NAN.
