vladimir putin russia ukraine war

On Friday, the ninth day of the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, the news of the attack on the Djoporizhzhya nuclear plant caused uneasiness all over the world. It is the largest nuclear plant in Europe. A building there caught fire due to the attack. The world has not forgotten the nuclear plant accident in Chernobyl, Ukraine in 1986. It was said that if there was an explosion at the Djoporizhzhya nuclear plant, it could prove to be ten times more devastating than the Chernobyl accident.

Thankfully, training was given in the building where the fire broke out. No sensitive machinery was there. That fire too was brought under control in time. After this it was assured that the nuclear plant is now completely safe. The IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) also told after talking to the local authorities that no increase in the radiation level was found around the plant. A sigh of relief can certainly be taken from this, but it has to be remembered that the situation there remains the same. Ukraine has four nuclear power plants.

Russia Ukraine War Cost: How much money is the Russian government spending every day on the Russo-Ukraine war? America was also surprised to know the truth!

The Russian forces are continuing the attack and this entire development has had no effect on their stand. It has to be understood that the kind of situation created in Djoporizhia was no longer a matter of war between the two countries. A threat to a nuclear power plant meant a threat to the whole of Europe. Whatever the justified (or illegitimate) reason a country may have for going to war, it cannot be allowed to put at stake the population of all those countries which are not involved in that war. All the countries of the world including China have rightly expressed concern over this situation.

There is a Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine, but the whole of Europe is in tension about it!

Britain has appealed to convene an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council on this issue. There must be a meeting, but more important than that, a solution should be found out of that meeting. All the meetings so far can be said to be ineffective in that they have not made any difference to the ground situation. Two rounds of talks have already been held between Russia and Ukraine, third round of talks are also going to happen, but till now neither there is any sign of ceasefire nor on issues like providing safe passage for civilians. Some concrete progress has been made.
