Dmytro Kuleba, the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, urged the Russian army, on Friday, to cease fire close to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in southern Ukraine.
Dmytro insisted fire already broke out and will be ten times larger than Chornobyl if it blows up.
“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 10 times larger than Chornobyl.
“Russians must immediately cease the fire, allow firefighters, establish a security zone,” Dmytro tweeted.
A fire previously burned several hours overnight at Zaperizhzhia’s nuclear plant after shelling from Russian forces caused widespread concern about the safety of Ukraine’s atomic infrastructure.
The fire was located in a training building on the site’s premises, extinguished at about 6:20am Ukrainian time.
The accident that had earlier occured at the Chernobyl nuclear plant in Ukraine on April 26, 1986 remains one of the world’s worst nuclear disasters.
After the explosion of a reactor block at the nuclear power plant, radioactive substances spread over large parts of Europe for several days.
