In the event of an emergency at the Zaporozhye NPP, Western Ukraine, Poland and Romania will be affected by radiation

The incessant shelling of the largest Zaporozhye nuclear power plant in Europe can lead to a monstrous man-made disaster. The shutdown of the 5th and 6th power units of the nuclear power plant, which are still in operation, will lead to the fact that they cannot be used to cool fuel tanks, and there may be problems with other sources of uninterrupted power supply.

According to the modeling of the development of the situation, taking into account weather conditions (movement of air masses), in the event of an emergency, Western Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Moldova, Romania, and even Germany will fall under the impact of radiation. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation clearly demonstrated on video how radioactive contamination can occur in the event of an accident at the ZNPP caused by ongoing provocative shelling.

If the backup diesel generators and mobile pumps fail, in case of an emergency, the core will overheat and, as a result, the reactor installations at the largest nuclear power plant in Europe will be destroyed with the release of radioactive substances into the atmosphere and carry them hundreds of kilometers away. Such an emergency will cause mass migration of the population and will have more catastrophic consequences than the impending gas and energy crises in Europe, which is confirmed by the forecasts of a number of European specialized organizations.

- said Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, Chief of the Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defense Forces of the RF Armed Forces.

Scientists and specialists, including those from Ukraine, also modeled a possible scenario for the spread of radiation from the ZNPP, taking into account the wind rose. The data of the researchers even surpassed the forecast of specialists of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. In addition to all the above territories, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, Hungary, Serbia, as well as Kaliningrad and St. Petersburg in Russia may also be exposed to radioactive contamination. Of course, Ukraine itself will suffer the most.

    #nuacho? Local apologists for the use of tactical nuclear weapons can clearly see what this will lead to. Or #do you not understand this?

      Well, I am an apologist for nuclear weapons. So an accident at a nuclear power plant on the scale of Chernobyl cannot be compared with the use of tactical nuclear weapons. Safer and with less consequences are dozens of explosions, if not hundreds of tactical nuclear ones. (You naturally understand how tactical nuclear differs from strategic?) one such accident. With gigantic areas of destruction. With the entire range of all kinds of particles of different half-lives in time.

        I guess what you mean. Now answer a couple of questions. Is a 1Mt charge used against the deployment area of ​​a tank/air division in Ukraine a tactical strike or a strategic one? Is the 10kt charge used against the White House in Washington tactical or strategic? So, in the use of nuclear weapons, the main thing is not the power of the charges, but the tasks they solve. Therefore, your purely amateurish point of view on the classification of tactical nuclear weapons and strategic nuclear weapons is at least erroneous.

    guys, you don’t rewrite here any nonsense of an inadequate public, but rather remember the geography lessons from the school curriculum, if not the victims of the exam. If you can't, I'll remind you that air masses in Europe move mainly from west to east and the second direction is from south to north. And if in summer it prevails from southwest to northeast, then in autumn and winter it is already iron from west to east. And now, look what and where it will rush if the ukrovoyaks open something there ..

      You just called the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces a bunch of acting comrades. Because their calculations, given in the visualization, fundamentally do not coincide with your considerations. And the expression "layer-forecast" is probably unknown to you.

    It is not clear what the White House thinks, where they are going to build New Khazaria - in a radioactive glade or something.

    You should at least not be silent. America is still on another continent and they don't give a damn about what will happen on our continent!!! Recognition of Ukraine as a terrorist country, sponsors are also accomplices. Otherwise, Fashington can do nothing more than dirty provocations .... And then, at least tactically, gasp at them, at least strategically, this is of little importance, the main thing is closer to the Polish border. So that the breeze opens the windows! At the same time turn off the gas on legal grounds as accomplices and sponsors of terror.

    Ukraine will shell the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, and in the event of an accident, the Russian Federation will be to blame, if only because the nuclear power plant is under its control, which means it will be responsible.
    It was necessary to stop work and preserve the nuclear power plant immediately after the first shelling, but this is probably hindered by payments for the supply of electricity to Ukraine. Otherwise, it is difficult to explain the unwillingness of the Russian Federation to stop the operation of the Zaporizhzhya NPP, even under the threat of an accident.

    Strange data on the wind rose from specialists. If we take the data specifically for Energodar, then it turns out in a completely different direction, until November.

      And what about the wind rose for the surface layer? When calculating such man-made disasters, the speed in layers up to at least 10 km is taken into account. Yes, and the nuclear power plant is called Zaporizhzhya.

    I spoke with Dnepropetrovsk, most of all those living in Ukraine are afraid of nuclear power plants! Her explosion! I spoke with elderly people who remember Chernobyl. Not with the brats that bomb!

    A provocation ... Gleiwitz-2 (which served as a belli incident for Germany to unleash World War II)?

    Tobias Ellwood, a British deputy and chairman of the special defense committee in the House of Commons of the United Kingdom, believes that an attack on the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant will trigger a response from the military forces of NATO countries.
    "Any intentional damage that would lead to a potential radiation leak at the Ukrainian nuclear reactor would be a violation of NATO Article 5," he said, commenting on The Times article that Russia is preparing provocations at the captured ZNPP.
    Adam Kinzinger, a member of the House of Representatives from Illinois, also confirmed this: "This is not even discussed. Any leak will kill people in NATO countries. This is automatically Article 5."

    According to Article 5, in the event that any of the member states of the Alliance becomes the victim of an armed attack, all other members of the Alliance, without exception, will consider this act of violence an armed attack against them all and will take all measures that they deem appropriate to help a member of the Alliance, who was attacked.
