Russia sets fire at Ukrainian power plant, sparks fear of nuclear disaster

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy informed world leaders on Thursday that Russia had set fire to a nuclear power plant in its country in a chilling act of violence.

“If there is an explosion – that’s the end for everyone. The end for Europe. The evacuation of Europe,” he said during a Thursday night speech.

“Only urgent action by Europe can stop the Russian troops. Do not allow the death of Europe from a catastrophe at a nuclear power station,” he added.

Zelenskyy called on world leaders to put a stop to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions against Ukraine for the safety of his people and the world.

By Friday morning, the blaze was under control and stopped by Ukrainians.

The chilling thought of nuclear disaster revealed how serious Putin’s invasion has become and showed why it’s a battle against not only one nation, but one that impacts the world.
