Ukrainian Foreign Minister warns of the danger of radiation leak from Chernobyl nuclear power plan, APA reports citing Dmytro Kuleba's Twitter page.
"The only electrical grid supplying the Chornobyl NPP and all its nuclear facilities occupied by the Russian army is damaged. CNPP lost all electric supply. I call on the international community to urgently demand Russia to cease fire and allow repair units to restore the power supply.
Reserve diesel generators have a 48-hour capacity to power the Chornobyl NPP. After that, cooling systems of the storage facility for spent nuclear fuel will stop, making radiation leaks imminent. Putin’s barbaric war puts entire Europe in danger. He must stop it immediately!"
