UN Watchdog Has Dire Warning After Rockets Strike Ukraine Nuke Plant

The bloody and atrocious war in Ukraine has been ongoing since February, and with no end in sight.

Russia’s poorly prepared army has resorted to genocide and terrorism in an attempt to win the war, which they unjustly started by invading the sovereign nation and immediately facing unending and courageous resistance.

The reputation of the Russian military has been decimated in the process, as a number of idiotic and evil stories pour out of the theater of war.

The latest in this line of ludicrous behavior has a UN nuclear watchdog group overtly concerned.

Ukraine accused Russian forces on Sunday of launching rockets at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, further ratcheting fears of an accident a day after the United Nation’s watchdog warned that fighting at the occupied complex risked a “nuclear disaster.”

It was the second time in as many days that the plant, which is the largest of its kind in Europe, was hit. Ukraine and Russia have traded blame for both attacks.

The rockets launched on Saturday night struck near a dry storage facility, where 174 casks with spent nuclear fuel are kept, according to Energoatom, Ukraine’s state-run nuclear power company. Explosions blew out windows in parts of the plant and one worker was hospitalized with shrapnel wounds.

“Apparently, they aimed specifically at the containers with processed fuel, which are stored outside next to the site of shelling,” the company said in a statement on Telegram.

And then, tersely…

Three radiation monitoring detectors were also damaged on Saturday, making “timely detection and response in case of aggravation of the radiation situation or leakage of radiation from spent nuclear fuel casks are currently impossible,” Energoatom said.

“This time a nuclear catastrophe was miraculously avoided, but miracles cannot last forever,” it added.

This isn’t Russia’s first run-in with a potential radioactive disaster.

In the early days of the invasion, imbecilic Russian fighters descended upon the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site, kicking up a great deal of nuclear dust with their heavy machinery and even irradiating themselves by digging trenches in the highly contaminated soil in the surrounding forest.
