International atomic agency on watch as Europe’s largest nuclear power plant under attack by Russians

According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine had been shelled by Russian forces overnight and one building on the site was burned, although the fire appears to be extinguished. The agency describes it as a serious situation. Others said it was a training building, not the nuclear reactor itself.

News reports from agencies on the ground report Russian troops at the entrance of the power plant engaged in active combat with Ukrainians defending the plant.

IAEA official updates are at this link.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said, “Europe must wake up now. The largest nuclear station in Europe is on fire. Right now Russian tanks are shelling nuclear units. These are the tanks that have thermal vision, so they know where they are shelling. They prepared for it,” according to translated reports.

IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi appealed for a halt of the use of force and warned of severe danger if any reactors were hit. He is expected to hold a press conference at 10:30 Central European Time on Friday.

The Ukraine regulatory authority said a fire had not affected essential equipment and plant personnel were mitigating the situation. So far, there are no reported change in radiation levels at the plant, it said.

The IAEA has put its Incident and Emergency Centre in full response mode due to the situation at the power plant, which is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe.

It’s unclear who has control of the nuclear power plant at this point. Russians have already seized control of the mothballed Chernobyl nuclear plant, the site of the worst nuclear disaster in world history.

  1. Happy America? You voted for a senile corrupt fool and the world went to hell.

    For everything wrong with Trump, the world was a lot saner 2016-2020

  2. I used to support the Ukrainian government, until… I remembered about Hunter Biden, Pelosi’s and Rommney’s kids working high paying joke jobs in Ukraine (money laundering..?). Then the social media posts from Zelenski hanging out with truedeau and soros made me question who does their government really work for. The sticker is the reports of 8-11 “wuhan lab” type bio weapon labs that are located in Ukraine and paid for with American tax dollars. If democrats support something, don’t. There’s a rabbit and a gotcha up their sleeves.

  3. Maybe it’s a good thing the Russians took this over, considering the people on the boards of Ukraine’s energy sector are a Biden a Pelosi a Kerry and a Romney……..

  4. The Ukranian “military” are attempting to preserve the “scientists” behind chemicals and bioweapons too awful to build in civilian centers or to be allowed to continue for fear of affecting continued livability of our precious earth. The Russian army now have the nuclear facility in their control. The Russians did not sabotage this facility though many Russians military were harmed while bringing the facility back under sane control.

  5. The comments on here are sickening. What kind of depraved human beings root for Putin’s madness?

    • Lighten up, Francis. No one is rooting for Putin. You, perhaps? Not the rest of us.

      Take your head out of your Biden and actually read what’s written. Not what you want to be there.

      • What else do you call it? Rather than condemning a horrible act, or simply keeping silent and maintaining a little dignity, you’re actively deflecting to some imaginary Biden sideshow that only takes pressure of Putin’s actions. I suspect you have an idea what you’re doing though.

    • There’s plenty of Russians online and offline pushing Putin’s agenda, it’s well known that Putin along with the Chinese have been funding environmental organizations in the US and Europe for quite some time. In 2014 Hilary Clinton said “We were up against Russia pushing oligarchs and others to buy media. We were even up against phony environmental groups, and I’m a big environmentalist, but these were funded by the Russians to stand against any effort, ‘Oh that pipeline, that fracking, that whatever will be a problem for you,’ and a lot of the money supporting that message was coming from Russia,” We shouldn’t be too surprised when shills for tyrants from foreign countries spread their depravity, we should however make a concerted effort to point these comments out…the same kind of posts designed to sow confusion have been made during the pandemic.

  6. Independent research has provided with ease approximately 15 locations in Ukraine apparently owned by US firms. This was common irrefutable information a few weeks ago. Not private secret info.

    Pretend you were a father. Pretend you loved your kids. Would you be “uncomfortable” with foreign companies “experimenting” with warfare bioweapons of various and sundry applications in your neivhborhood? How long would you tolerate this? Forever? Of course you would. Would it be provocative and respectful for foreign “men” to process these items in your neighborhood? While they pranced feebly around in high heeled boots and costumes making faces? Would you “notice”? Prolly not under modern woke circumstances.

  7. I’m not highly interested in this topic. I found information this morning in my lay person slight overview. The easily found article named the 15 locations within the Ukraine that appear to be where the policing has happened. The context of nexus to “banking” was drawn too. The ruble has lost thirty percent of its value because of defensive local police action. I wouldn’t be defending the right to produce bioweapons anywhere on earth right now Why on earth would anyone in a sound mind fight for that right to eradicate humans with ghastly plagues? Nice guys with good manners, really?

  8. So, there is the fake news propaganda that the media is being told to report to Americans so the brainwashing can continue and then there is the REAL story. The Deep State will stop at nothing to prevent their money laundering system in Ukraine from going under. There is chatter that the Neo Nazi group, The Azrov-Battalion, was going to set off a bomb at the Nuclear Plant and blame the catastrophe on Russia. The Russians moved in to stop it from happening and put out the fire. There are things happening that half of America would not believe because they so badly want to trust the lying media. The operation currently ongoing to take down the Deep State financial system is on track. Ukraine is the key! Once Putin meets his objectives in disarming the Neo-Nazis and destroying Obama’s Bioweapons Labs, the Russians will head home. Doesn’t it bother you that your tax money has been taken from you to feed an international criminal network and was used to setup Bioweapons Labs to be used against innocent people? We must wakeup from the false reality they built to keep us in the dark.
