Maior central nuclear da Europa está “fora de controlo”

By Phil Bainbridge

March 4, 2022 - A AIEA apelou a acesso à central de Zaporíjia – agora sob controlo russo mas operada por técnicos ucranianos – para permitir aos peritos estabilizar o complexo e evitar um acidente nuclear.

Observers have been unable to visit the site since it was captured by Russian forces in March and connection with surveillance systems is frequently lost. Supply chains have been disrupted by the war, restricting the availability of vital equipment and spare parts, and the physical integrity of the structures could have been compromised by active fighting in the area and even the possibility of munitions being stored on site.

There are four major nuclear plants in Ukraine, plus the now-retired Chernobyl.
