Moscow, Aug 17 (Prensa Latina) Zaporozhie authorities denounced that Ukrainian attacks against weak points of the nuclear power plant, including the cooling system, could cause "a catastrophe worse than Chernobyl" in 1986.

In this regard, the official explained that the Armed Forces of Ukraine launch deliberate attacks against the cooling system, aware that these offensives can unleash uncontrolled processes.

Likewise, Vladimir Rogov denounced that the Kiev soldiers also bombard the containers with nuclear fuel waste, which could bring about radioactive contamination if the projectiles hit these facilities.

He argued that one of the guided munitions hit about 10 meters from the tanks with waste, while others fell about 50 and 200 meters away.

As for the reactors at the plant, the representative indicated that they are fully protected.

In this respect, he assured that, in theory, it is possible to suspend the plant, although from an economic point of view it would not be convenient because it would be very costly. On the other hand, it would not be possible to evacuate the nuclear fuel waste, he clarified.

In this context, Russia convened a meeting of the UN Security Council to address the situation, during which Grossi proposed that a mission of experts inspect the facilities.

He also urged both Russian and Ukrainian authorities to cooperate in order for the summoned personnel to have access to the plant.
