Ukraine has lost control over the Chornobyl nuclear power plant after fierce fighting, Mykhailo Podolyak, advisor to the chief-of-staff to the Office of the President of Ukraine, told NV in a comment on Feb. 24.

The state of the Chornobyl nuclear plant facilities, confinement, and nuclear waste storages sites, are currently unknown, he said.

“After the absolutely senseless attack of the Russians in this area, it is impossible to say that the Chornobyl plant is safe,” Podolyak said.

“This is one of the most serious threats to Europe today.”

“Knowing the Russians’ habits, they are probably already preparing provocative things at the Chornobyl nuclear power plant. Either they will take advantage of the damage received by objects during the attack to blame Ukraine for this, or they themselves will damage these most dangerous facilities,” the adviser said.
