This week, the Ministry of Health published a note on actions in the event of a radiological danger, and the Ministry of Health’s “Air Alert” application added an option to warn of a nuclear threat.
According to Oleksandr Kovalenko, military-political observer of the group “Information Resistance”, the Ukrainians should not be afraid of a nuclear strike.
Russia will not use nuclear weapons for a number of reasons, starting with the fact that it is not included in the concept of its doctrine at least. And to the maximum, they fully understand that the use of even tactical nuclear weapons against a non-nuclear state threatens the corresponding actions of already nuclear states,
– says the expert.
In addition to tactical nuclear weapons, Russia is blackmailing Ukraine with the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant accident. Now there are about 500 Russian soldiers on the territory of the station, as well as military equipment and explosives.
On August 5, rioters damaged a high voltage communication line, a nitrogen-oxygen station and an auxiliary building. A day later – three radiation monitoring sensors. And on August 11, they arrived at the fire brigade near the Zaenz plant.
There is a rather large risk that some of the missiles used, for example, for the next staged bombing of the territory of the ZANP, are in fact faulty and defective. Its trajectory can change in totally unpredictable ways, and it will indeed fall into a nuclear power plant,
– explains Alexander Kovalenko.
According to the second military expert, Oleg Zhdanov, the building of ZAES should be strong enough.
Whether there will be a nuclear explosion is very difficult to say today. Everything will depend on the nature of the explosive and its quantity. But I will say right away that the power plant, the reactor building itself, is probably the most reliable structure that can be invented. And to detonate it, you need a very large amount of explosives,
– says Oleg Zhdanov.
But if an accident occurs at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, this will threaten the release of radioactive substances.
The emission of radiation in the atmosphere will create a so-called radioactive cloud, which will begin its journey depending on the direction of the wind blowing at the time of the explosion. And further, where it will reach and where it will fall as a rush, only God knows here,
– says Oleg Zhdanov.
