It’s a sad day for nuclear power plants all over the world, as one of their brothers is forced to retire due to the savage Ukrainian hatred of electricity.
The last working power unit was switched off at the Russia-controlled Zaporozhye nuclear power station early on Sunday, the local authorities and the plant’s Ukrainian operator said.
The sixth reactor “was stopped at 3:45am. Now it doesn’t generate electricity,” Vladimir Rogov, a member of the Zaporozhye Region administration, told RIA-Novosti.
The decision to shut down was made due to continued shelling of the plant by Ukraine and damage to the power lines, he said. The constantly changing mode in which the reactors and turbines were forced to operate, because of the attacks, created the risk of an accident, the official explained.
According to Rogov, the unit had already been operating at minimum capacity for several days.
Ukrainian state-owned company Energoatom has also confirmed the so-called ‘cold shutdown’ of the last unit, with the Zaporozhye facility coming to a complete halt.
The largest nuclear power plant in Europe has been controlled by Russian forces since March, but is still operated by Ukrainian staff.
Moscow has warned that the continued attacks could cause a nuclear disaster that would eclipse the 1986 Chernobyl incident and affect many countries in Europe.
Ukraine claims that Russia has turned the plant into a military base and that it is shelling the facility itself in order to pin the blame on Kiev.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), whose inspectors visited the plant in early September, has demanded that all attacks on the plant “be stopped immediately,” but refrained from identifying the party responsible for them.
Yeah, that was the gayest and most retarded thing I’ve seen yet – what does that even mean? “Oh well, we can’t say who’s doing it, but they better stop!”
I didn’t think it was possible for the nuclear team to just blame Russia, but I didn’t even think of the possibility that they would say “well, we’re not going to say who it is, but they know who they are…”
I figured they would say the Ukraine was doing it, then the UN would issue a retraction 24 hours later saying “oh, actually, Russia is probably doing it.”
This is of course after the Ukraine tried to blow up the UN convoy.
These people are just total psychos.
