Russian Forces Take Over Ukraine’s Major Nuclear Plant After Shelling It, Starting a Fire- Update

14

UPDATE: Russia on Thursday continued its brutal offensive to seize cities and port areas in Ukraine, even as it agreed with Ukrainian officials to create “humanitarian corridors,” or temporary local cease-fires for escaping civilians. Overnight, Russian forces shelled a Ukrainian nuclear power complex (above), igniting a blaze that was captured on video and later extinguished without radiation leakage. The emergency and Russia’s seizure of the plant, according to Ukraine, renewed international calls for Moscow to cease its assault (The Associated Press).

According to RT, Russians claimed they were hit by Ukrainians and responded.

ORIGINAL STORY (Videos of the shelling)

Russian forces were shooting at generators or switch gears at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant — the Zaporizhzhya power plant. The Russians were trying to take out the electrical power and a fire has started in the administration building.

The plant reportedly accounts for about a quarter of the nation’s power.

The fierce fighting between Russians and Ukrainians was about reportedly 150 meters away from the reactors.

It looks like the Russian military has taken over the Power Plant, Europe’s largest nuclear power plant.

It’s unlikely they were firing at reactors, but what they were doing, if it is what they were doing  since this is an early report, is dangerous. There are six nuclear reactors at the site and they appear untouched.

Watch out for the early reports:

Like Putin would try to destroy a nuclear power plant . Isn’t he trying to seize the country? I’d say it’s Deep State.

Fake news. The russians didn’t shell the nuke plant. Ukrainian plant security did. The only thing on fire was an outbuilding. More propaganda perhaps?

If the election had not been stolen he would still have been 45. When he wins in 2024 he will be 46.

Not a chance, Putin knew he could not pull something like this with Trump in office and the Chinese as well. They can get away with anything with the feckless senile cowardly clown Joe Biden.
