Russia, with Kiev raid in Zaporizhzhia world on disaster brink

(ANSA) – NEW YORK, AUG 11 – “The criminal acts of Ukraine against the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant are pushing the world to the brink of a nuclear disaster comparable to Chernobyl”. This was stated by the Russian ambassador to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia, during the meeting of the Security Council. “We have repeatedly warned our Western colleagues that if they fail to bring the Kiev government to reason, it will resort to more heinous and senseless acts that will reverberate far beyond Ukraine’s borders. Unfortunately, this is exactly what is happening now.” , he added.

Meanwhile, Russian military sources said that “the thermal power plant and the water tanks of the reactor cooling system of the Zaporizhzia power plant were partially damaged by the Ukrainian raids” but, the Russian defense ministry later specified, “the critical infrastructure of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant was not damaged, thanks to the defense put in place by the Russian armed forces “.
