Nuclear Power Station in Ukraine on fire after Russian attack


On Thursday, Russian forces attempted to take control of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station in Enerhodar, Ukraine.


The plant is now on fire after several artillery strikes carried out by Russian forces.


The Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency Rafael Mariano Grossi appealed for an immediate halt to the use of force at the nuclear power plant.


The Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe.


There are four nuclear power plants in service in Ukraine.


Should the plant explode, it will be ten times larger than the Chernobyl disaster. The Chernobyl disaster happened in 1986 and remains radioactive today.
