Ukrainian authorities said they were finally able to transport the firefighters to Zaporizhazhia nuclear power plant To put out the fire in one of the units hit by Russian artillery and that Factory integrity is now “restored”.
“The director of the plant assured that nuclear safety is now guaranteed,” Oleksandr Staruch, head of the military administration of the Zaporizhzhya region, wrote on Facebook.
The Ukrainian authorities of the International Atomic Energy Agency also denied that there had been increases in the level of radiation around the plant.
Russian forces “are striking Zaporizhia, the largest nuclear power plant in Europe. There are already flames. If it explodes, it will be ten times worse than Chernobyl. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said on Twitter that Russia should immediately cease fire and allow firefighters to “intervene and create a safe zone”.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Russia is resorting to “nuclear terrorism”., hit a nuclear power plant for the first time in history, which “want to repeat the Chernobyl disaster. We want to alert the world that no country outside Russia has shot at nuclear power plants. It is the first time in our country. In a video released by the Ukrainian presidency, “History said Zelensky. , the first time in human history. This terrorist state is now resorting to nuclear terrorism.”
I will not back down from my declaration that Russia and Ukraine are one people. While the Moscow army continues to bomb open-air bombs, besieging from Chernihiv in the north to Mariupol in the south, Russian President Vladimir Putin He is speaking again and claiming his “anti-Russian” war created by the West “which threatens even with nuclear weapons”. Attack, according to the French president Emmanuel Macronwho spoke today with the leader of the Kremlin, aims to “control all of Ukraine”.
But with the ever growing threat, from the second round of negotiations in the Brest Forest, on the border between Belarus and Poland, comesDeclaration of humanitarian corridors to evacuate civilianstemporary ceasefire in the affected areas. According to Kyiv, it will also allow the delivery of food and medicine to residents of the most affected centers. A shy first sign of openness, in the face of the tragedy of more than a million refugees and an entire people at last, after 8 days of conflict. Talks will resume early next week again in a secret area in Belarus. But in the meantime, Putin warned that the “special operation” would continue.
“We achieve our goals and succeed,” the Russian president said. Meanwhile, the second round of negotiations, conducted by delegations largely similar to those in the first, led to the agreement promised by Moscow on a “safe” exit for civilians from the areas under siege. The agreement will now be translated into tangible form by the defenses involved. Russia’s chief negotiator, Vladimir Medinsky, spoke of “significant progress”, explaining that humanitarian and military issues were discussed, as well as a possible political solution to the conflict in the future.
“The positions of Russia and Ukraine are clear,” he said. Zelensky’s adviser, Mikhailo Podolyak, did not go out of balance, assuring that the “hoped results” were not achieved, while the head of the Duma’s Foreign Affairs Committee, Leonid Slutsky, who was also at the talks, needed “more” meetings.
However, while they wait, the situation on the ground is set to become even heavier, with the threat of a fierce naval battle in Odessa, along with the bombardment of missiles on cities. In order to find a real solution, Zelensky said, a meeting at the highest level would be needed.
“I have to talk to Putin, because this is the only way to stop this war,” said the Ukrainian president, assuring himself that he was “open” and “ready to address all issues.” Which, according to media close to the Kremlin, is also related to the situation in the Donbass and Lugansk proclaimed separatist republics, where the fighting continues unabated. “Sit with me to negotiate, but not 30 meters away,” was the plea to the Russian leader, recalling Putin’s meetings with Macron and Schulz with a provocative flash of the former comedian.
“I don’t bite. What are you afraid of?” , added the Ukrainian president, who is increasingly becoming a hero in the international media, while, according to intelligence, he remains the number one target of Moscow’s killers. However, the Kremlin leader is unlikely to accept the meeting. As Europe prepares to receive refugees, the United States and the United Kingdom announce new sanctions against the oligarchy, Moldova is also seeking stability in the West by formally submitting its candidacy for EU membership. But Zelensky insisted that the defense of Kyiv was that the future of the continent was at stake.
“If Ukraine falls – warn – Russia will take the Baltic states and Eastern Europe. If we are to disappear, it will be Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia’s turn. Even the Berlin Wall, believe me.”
