Russian tanks set reactor at Europe’s biggest atomic power plant ON FIRE: Zelensky accuses Putin of ‘nuclear terror’ after shelling starts blaze at unit housing radioactive material sparking fears of disaster ’10 times larger than Chernobyl’


The Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine, the largest of its kind in Europe, was on fire early on Friday after an attack by Russian troops, the mayor of the nearby town of Energodar said. There has been fierce fighting between local forces and Russian troops, Dmytro Orlov said in an online post, adding that there had been casualties without giving details. Earlier, Ukrainian authorities reported Russian troops were stepping up efforts to seize the plant and had entered the town with tanks. ‘As a result of continuous enemy shelling of buildings and units of the largest nuclear power plant in Europe, the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant is on fire,’ Orlov said on his Telegram channel, citing what he called a threat to world security.
