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

Unconfirmed reports that Russian forces at Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station might drain the cooling ponds

There have been unconfirmed reports that Russian forces at Zapphrizia
nuclear plant, Europe’s largest nuclear plant located in Ukraine, could be
attempting to drain the cooling ponds there – something which could spell
disaster for the continent and the UK.

The Russian forces reportedly want
to drain the cooling pond in order to conduct weapons searches. Dr Paul
Dorfman told Express.co.uk that this would be “utter madness” and
warned of disaster if the Russian forces went through with their plan.

Dr Dorfman is an Associate Fellow, Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU), Sussex
Business School, University of Sussex. He has worked with both the
Government as well as European Governments on various areas of nuclear
policy. He said: “Draining spent nuclear fuel ponds would be utter
madness, as cascading problems could lead to very significant radioactive
release – and depending on which way the wind is blowing, the radioactive
pollution could either go to Europe or Russia.”
