Russia-Ukraine War: The situation has become critical in Ukraine’s two nuclear plants, Chernobyl and Zaporizhia. Both these plants were captured by the Russian army.

  • Electricity required in the plant for cooling
  • No data transmission from japorizia
Russia-Ukraine War: Power has gone out at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant amid ongoing tensions in Russia and Ukraine. However, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) attached to the United Nations says that it has no serious impact on security.
The IAEA also reported that data transmission had also disappeared from Zaporizhia, Europe’s largest nuclear power plant. The Zaporizhia plant was captured by the Russian army on 4 March. At the same time, the Russian army was captured on the very first day of the war in Chernobyl. In April 1986, there was a major nuclear accident at the Chernobyl plant.
On Wednesday, Ukraine’s energy operator UkraineErgo reported on Facebook that the power grid in Chernobyl was completely disconnected. The IAEA called it a major security lapse, although it also said that it did not have a serious impact on security.
On Tuesday, UkraineErgo also expressed concern about the staff working under the supervision of the Russian military at the Chernobyl plant. He said that the staff situation in Chernobyl is deteriorating. More than 2 thousand employees are still working here to ensure that an accident like 1986 does not happen again.
Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba tweeted on Wednesday that the plant has a reserve diesel generator, which can provide electricity for 48 hours, but after that the cooling system will shut down.
Ukraineergo said the military operation meant there was no possibility of restoring the line in Chernobyl. The operator also told that there was no power in the security system of the site.

Data transmission missing in japoregia

The IAEA said that the reason for the non-transmission of data in Zaporizhia is not yet known. The agency said that the interruption in data transmission from both the sites is worrying. Along with Zaporizhia, transmission was not taking place in Chernobyl.
IAEA DG Rafael Grossi said that remote transmission of data from the agency’s safeguard equipment at nuclear sites around the world is very important. He told that such a system helps us to monitor nuclear material and activity at these sites.
