Russia warns of nuclear disaster ‘worse than Chernobyl’
Kiev’s shelling of the Zaporozhye power plant puts millions of lives at risk, the Russian Foreign Ministry has said
Ukraine’s shelling of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant is an act of terrorism that could trigger a disaster that would eclipse the 1986 Chernobyl incident, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

“In recent days, Ukrainian forces have been repeatedly shelling the territory of the Zaporozhye NPP, which is an act of nuclear terrorism. Such actions by the Kiev regime could lead to a disaster on a scale that would dwarf the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant,” the Russian Foreign Ministry’s deputy spokesperson, Ivan Nechaev, told a news briefing in Moscow.

According to the diplomat, should such a disaster occur, radiation would hit not only nearby regions in Ukraine, Russia, the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, but also European countries, putting millions of lives at risk.

Nechaev also said he hoped the international community would pay attention to the situation at the site. “We are in favor of organizing an IAEA [International Atomic Energy Agency] mission to the Zaporozhye NPP, which was disrupted in June due to the decision of the UN Secretariat’s Department of Safety and Security,” he said.

On Thursday, Zaporozhye officials claimed that Russian air defense systems had thwarted a missile and drone attack on the NPP and the nearby city of Energodar.

“[The Ukrainian military] are trying to bombard the peaceful town and the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant with MLRS [multiple launch rocket systems], heavy artillery and strike UAVs [unmanned aerial vehicles],” said Vladimir Rogov, a member of the chief council of the Zaporozhye Region military-civilian administration, adding that all the attacks were repelled and Ukrainian artillery positions hit by counter-battery fire.

On Wednesday, the Group of Seven (G7), consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK, and the US, called on Russia to cede the nuclear power plant that was seized by Moscow’s forces in early March back to Ukraine. The group said the move would ensure the facility’s “safe and secure operations.” The nuclear power plant has been taken over by Russian troops, but is still being operated and maintained by Ukrainian crews.

One day previous, Moscow summoned an emergency session of the UN Security Council to discuss “Ukrainian provocations,” including a series of shelling attacks on the NPP. The meeting is expected to take place on Thursday.

On Monday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova accused Kiev of holding the whole of Europe hostage, saying its government officials “apparently won’t hesitate to burn it for the sake of their Nazi idols.” At the same time, Kiev has denied all allegations, claiming it was the Russian troops that shelled the facility to frame Ukrainian forces.

According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Zaporozhye plant is the largest in Europe and has up to 60 tons of enriched uranium and plutonium in its reactor cores and spent fuel storage.



また、ネチャエフ氏は、国際社会が現地の状況に目を向けることを望んでいると述べた。"我々は、国連事務局安全保障部の決定により6月に中断されたザポロジェ原子力発電所へのIAEA(国際原子力機関)ミッションを組織することに賛成している "と述べた。



カナダ、フランス、ドイツ、イタリア、日本、英国、米国で構成される七カ国グループ(G7)は2日、ロシアに対し、3月初旬にモスクワ軍に占領された原子力発電所をウクライナに割譲するよう求めた。同団体は、この動きによって同施設の "安全で確実な操業 "が確保されるとしている。原子力発電所はロシア軍によって占拠されたが、現在もウクライナの乗組員によって運営・維持されている。


月曜日、ロシア外務省のマリア・ザハロワ報道官は、キエフがヨーロッパ全体を人質にしていると非難し、その政府関係者は "どうやらナチの偶像のために焼くことをためらわないようだ "と述べた。同時に、キエフはすべての疑惑を否定し、ウクライナ軍をはめるために施設を砲撃したのはロシア軍であると主張している。

ザポロージェ原発で事故が発生すれば、ロシア軍がすぐに発表するでしょう。ザポロージェ原発の緯度経度は、47.507250, 34.623687。北緯47.5は、サハリンのユージノサハリンスクの少し北くらいです。事故発生から放出された放射性物質が日本に到達するまでには、12時間以上の時間がかかります。飛散状況を見ながら対策を立てることになります。

There can be no winner in nuclear war – Russian FM
A nuclear conflict should never be started, Sergey Lavrov told RT and Sputnik

There can be no winner in a nuclear conflict, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday in an interview with RT and Sputnik.

When asked about the possibility of the conflict in Ukraine provoking a nuclear war between Russia and the West due to the ongoing attempts by the US and its allies to escalate the situation, Lavrov reminded that “we [Moscow] initiated a lot of statements of the five UN Security Council permanent members that there could be no victor in the nuclear war, it could never be started.”

“This is our stance. And we are going to stand firmly on this stance,” he insisted.

The Russian FM also reiterated that Russia has its own “doctrine that clearly stipulates what could be the case when we would be forced to use nuclear weapons.”

This doctrine only allows the use of nuclear arms if such weapons, or other types of weapons of mass destruction, are used to target Russia, or if the country is faced with an existential threat from conventional arms.

Lavrov also slammed the US administration for trying to spin the Ukraine conflict, insisting that “they're acting, well, irresponsibly, I would say. And the plans they make, they are building they really have some risks.”

Zelensky makes prediction on conflict's end

Zelensky makes prediction on conflict's end
The fighting will go on until Kiev takes back Crimea, the Ukrainian leader claims

Ukraine will keep fighting against Russia until it regains control over the Crimean Peninsula, President Vladimir Zelensky has promised.

“This Russian war against Ukraine, against the whole of free Europe, began with Crimea and it should end with Crimea – with its liberation,” Zelensky said in a video address on Tuesday.

“Crimea is Ukrainian, and we’ll never give up on it,” the president vowed, insisting that the peninsula, which overwhelmingly voted to reunite with Russia in a 2014 referendum in response to a coup in Kiev, has been “occupied” by Moscow all those years.

There will be no peace in the Black Sea and the Mediterranean regions “as long as Russia is able to use our peninsula as a military base,” he claimed.

However, Zelensky acknowledged that it was currently “impossible to say” when exactly will Ukraine be able to reclaim Crimea. “But we’re constantly adding new components to the formula of liberating” the peninsula, he added.

Last month, Ukrainian deputy defense minister Vladimir Gavrilov claimed that Kiev is going to use Western-supplied weapons to destroy the Russian Black Sea Fleet, which is based in the Crimean port city of Sevastopol, and take the peninsula back. Such an operation is going to be carried out “sooner or later,” he told the UK media.

Other Ukrainian officials also came up with threats against Crimea recently, one of them being Zelensky’s top aide Alexey Arestovich, who said that Kiev could strike the 19-kilometer-long Kerch Bridge connecting Crimea to Russia’s Krasnodar Region as soon as it gains technical capability to do so.

Moscow has been insisting that Crimea is well-protected from any attack by the Ukrainian side.

However, former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, who is now deputy chair of the country’s National Security Council, warned that if the leadership in Kiev really decided to use force against the peninsula “the Day of Judgment will come to them all simultaneously – a swift and hard one.”
