Fighting Intensifies Around Ukraine Nuclear Plant, Risk of Global Nuclear Armageddon Grows | Mining Awareness +

Ukrainian nuclear power operator Energoatom said the nitrogen-oxygen station, the domestic sewage pumping station, and the combined auxiliary building were seriously damaged during the shelling, as well as “three radiation monitoring sensors” around the dry storage of a spent nuclear fuel site.”

The operator said the fire department located outside the power plant was fired upon. Officials also said a shell hit a power transformer, threatening the country’s power grid.

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency said there’s “a real risk of nuclear disaster” unless the fighting stops, and inspectors are allowed inside the facility.
