Ukraine preparing for ‘tragedy’ at Russian-held nuclear plant – minister

A view of the Zaporizhzhia nuke power plant, during the Ukraine-Russia conflict, outside Enerhodar in Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia, 4 August 2022.

According to Ukraine’s Interior Minister, Ukraine should be ready for any situation at Zaporizhzhia (Russian-controlled nuclear power station). This includes evacuation of civilians from the affected areas.

Russia-installed officials and Ukraine-installed officers blamed each other for the latest round at the nuclear power plant – Europe’s biggest – in the southern Ukraine.


Denys Monastyrsky, Interior Minister, stated that the plant was not just in the hands the enemy but also in the hands unqualified specialists who could cause a tragedy.

He stated that it was difficult to imagine the extent of Russia’s actions if they continue their current policies.

Recent warnings have come from Ukraine about the possibility of a nuclear disaster in Chernobyl.

“This means we need to be ready for any scenario. Monastyrsky stated that the interior ministry, the state emergency services and the regions ministry are currently discussing different scenarios, including evacuations.
