Ukrainian power plant attacked – Zelenskyy warns of ‘death of Europe’

World

A fire has broken out at Europe’s biggest nuclear power plant after the Russian army targeted it “from all sides” in the Ukrainian city of Energodar.

Ukraine’s foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba has urged troops to immediately stop shooting at Zaporizhzhia power station so firefighters can take action.

Officials have warned there is a “real threat of nuclear danger”, with Mr Kuleba warning: “If it blows up, it will be 10 times larger than Chernobyl.”

A video on the plant’s YouTube channel appears to show large explosions at the power station.

Speaking to Ukrainian television, plant spokesman Andriy Tuz said one of the facility’s six reactors was on fire – and it has nuclear fuel inside.
