There is a risk of hostile provocations.

The Russian military has taken control of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

This information was confirmed by the head of the President's Office Mykhailo Podoliak. According to him, the station is currently in danger, there is a risk of provocations.

"After the fierce battle, our control over the Chernobyl site was lost. The condition of the former Chernobyl nuclear power plant, confinement and nuclear waste storage facilities is unknown. After a completely senseless Russian attack in this direction, it is impossible to say that Chernobyl is safe.

This is one of the most serious threats to Europe today. Knowing the habits of the Russians, they are probably already preparing provocative things at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Either they will use the damage received by the objects during the attack to blame Ukraine for this, or they will damage the most dangerous objects by far."

Today the occupying forces from the territory of Belarus entered the zone of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The National Guard, which guarded the hazardous radioactive waste storage facility, fiercely resisted. There was a threat of destruction of the nuclear waste repository. In this case, radioactive dust can cover the territory of Ukraine, Belarus, and EU countries.
