Russia Shells Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station in Ukraine

Russia Shells Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station in Ukraine

A lot of information floating around out there. From what we can tell the administration building is on fire and the reactors are NOT like those in Chernobyl.

Russian forces opened fire on the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station early Friday morning local time. The spokesperson of the plant said “there is no threat of radiation spread.”

Zaporizhzhia is located in Enerhodar, which is 423 miles south of Kyiv in the Zaporizhzhia Oblast.

This is a video of the shelling when it started.

I do not know much about what is going on because who knows who is telling the truth. For instance, a retired nuclear scientist countered Ukraine’s foreign minister.

Oh my, that seems a bad tactic….
Or, did someone get their Op Orders mixed up, and they were supposed to shell Chernobyl and capture Zaporizhzhia?

Shelling a large nuclear power plant seems like the height of arrogant stupidity. What do they hope to gain by causing radiation leaks and possibly a meltdown?

It does not matter if this is stupidity or intentional, it will galvanize the world to make Putin and Russia in general a target for severe sanctions, maybe including intervention of a violent nature.

    I think the chances it is not intentional are slim to none, but had Putin’s approval. IMO he is making an indirect reference to nuclear weapons and that the region could need fossil fuels from Russia even more than it does already. While a Western embargo on Russian goods was already possible, how much good does it do if China buy much of what the West does not buy?

    No, it won’t.

    Pretty sure the Russians did t do this
    The globalist are trying to get America to take military action and nothing like bombing nukes to point the way.

I wonder if the Ukranians would be willing to demilitarize the power plant, and remove all soldiers stationed there.

This supplies 20 percent of Ukraines power. Russia wants to control it, but shutting it down might be their objective.

Maybe Obama will call his buddy Putin and tell him to “knock it off”

    At least until the next election when he’ll have more flexibility.
    It’s probably going to take a lot of pressure on the roooskie oligarchs to get them to take action against pootin.
    Or as oblunder told us:

    Obama Tried to Warn Us: ‘Don’t Underestimate Joe’s Ability to F— Things Up’

My first thought was they were trying to force blackouts since this plant supplies about 20% of the country’s power. However, it was only an administrative building and not one of the six reactors.

John Kerry, golden by Democrat standards and former Sec. of State, made this brain dead statement in reference to the Ukraine invasion by Putin’s Russia Army:

“It could have a profound negative impact on the climate, obviously. You have a war and obviously you’re going to have massive emissions consequences of the war,”

Of all the tragic things that are happening and affecting every part of the globe, is this the best he can come up with?

While not as safe as a CANDU reactor design, in a VVER the (water) coolant is also the moderator which allows the nuclear reaction to occur. A catastrophic loss of coolant also stops the nuclear chain reaction, making a meltdown essentially impossible.

James Acton doesn’t know how reactors work.

The only thing I know for sure is we are getting lots of misinformation about the war.

Putin has been reportedly in isolation for the past few months. Covid is offered as the reason. Is he maybe in a nuclear bunker? This guy is nuts.

Soooo- they are sending in Kamala Harris, Border Czar, to de-escalate a world-ending conflict with the nuclear-armed rogue state? Asking for a friend

Ask yourself a few questions: have you heard the name of this Nuke plant before yesterday? Had any talking head of the msm put this on their cute maps? Why not?

This plant is an obvious target to seize. Why are the msm displaying this event like a card sharp pulls an ace from their sleeve? As if it’s some sudden, shocking thing that surprised everyone?

This is a propaganda play designed to continue and reinforce the narrative: ‘Scary, crazy Putin, Nuke plant meltdown like Chernobyl, environmental catastrophe, Ukraine = good guys send $, send arms, send sons and daughters, enforce no fly zone, be willing to pay $6 for gas to support our ‘values’ and so on.

Just a propaganda lie.

It’s ONE round, that is very clearly an illumination flare, NOT an explosive.

I am so sick of the blatant propaganda.

    Right? I want my propaganda to be at least slick enough to trick me long enough to make me think about it. This obvious disinformation just makes me pity people who buy it.
