The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Warning on effect of Russian force’s attack on nuclear research facility

 Russian forces have been firing at a nuclear research facility in Kharkiv,
the Ukrainian parliament has said. The nation’s parliament said it is
currently not possible to determine the scale of the damage of the attack.
“It is currently impossible to estimate the extent of damage due to
hostilities that do not stop in the area of the nuclear installation,”
quoted the State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate as saying.

Russian forces
last fired on a nuclear reactor facility in the city over two weeks ago,
hitting a building where there is equipment that officials warned could
release radiation if damaged. The research facility is a part of the
Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology, which reportedly produces
radioactive materials for medical and industrial usage. The Security
Service of Ukraine (SBU) previously warned that potential destruction of
the facility would lead to a large-scale environmental disaster.
