The EU will donate more than 5 million tablets of potassium iodide to Kyiv to protect against radiation


On August 26, 2022, the European Union received a request from the government of Ukraine for potassium iodide tablets to protect Ukrainians from radiation exposure that could occur in the event of an accident at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant. On August 30, the European Response Coordination Center mobilized 5,5 million tablets of this inorganic compound from the EU Civil Protection Mechanism for Ukraine, the American television company CNN reports, citing a representative of the European Commission.


It should be noted that potassium iodide is a colorless crystalline salt that turns yellow in the light. It is used in the form of tablets when there is a threat of radioactive iodine absorbed by the human thyroid gland into the body.

No nuclear power plant should ever be used as a theater of war. It is unacceptable that the lives of civilians be endangered. Therefore, all hostilities around the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant must be immediately stopped.

– said EU Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarcic.

At present, an IAEA delegation of 14 people is heading to the ZNPP, where it will stay from August 31 to September 3. The head of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi, has already met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and CNN cited an excerpt from the conversation.

Zelenskiy told Grossi that the IAEA's mission in Ukraine was urgent and that Kyiv wanted the agency's atomic energy team to do more than just inspect the ZNPP. What the Ukrainian president is preparing for and what he wants is not specified.

    Putin is now obliged to hint that the geyropa itself will need protection from radiation. No one is going to stop feeling impunity, the response should be extremely tough.

      There is only one way out - Nebenzya must deliver an ultimatum that if the ZNPP is defeated, the South Ukrainian NPP, which is much closer to Western Europe, will be destroyed and Europe, together with Western Ukraine, will become Fukushima squared. Only the remoteness of the ZNPP from Europe allows them to look through their fingers at the shelling. We must put them before the fact of mutual destruction.
      Otherwise it won't stop.

    And let them not forget 60 million condoms so that there are no more idiots to cut the radioactive branch on which they sit.

    5,5 million pills? one tablet per snout? doubtful. clearly chosen by the packaging .... apparently the Urkains are not needed at all. and 5-10 million selyuks, which they planned to leave since 2014, are not required to cultivate the fields of Monsanto ... more savvy will be recruited laughing

    As if there are no nuclear power plants in Europe and no one knows where they are.
    Gay Europeans. Save potassium iodide for yourself.
    It's not evening yet, it's not evening yet.
    All the best can be ahead...
