Ukraine ‘preparing for tragedy’ at nuclear plant, U.N. chief calls for demilitarised zone

Ukraine's interior minister said on Thursday that Ukraine had to be ready for any scenario at the Russian-controlled Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant that has been shelled, including evacuating people from the area.Ukraine and Russia-installed local officials blamed each other for a new volley of shelling on Thursday at the nuclear power plant — Europe's biggest — which lies in southern Ukraine.Russia seized Europe’s largest nuclear power plant in March after invading Ukraine on Feb. 24. The plant is still run by its Ukrainian technicians and Ukraine’s Energoatom said the area was struck five times on Thursday, including near the site where radioactive materials are stored.The plant is as of today not only in the hands of the enemy, but in the hands of uneducated specialists who could potentially allow for a tragedy to happen," Interior Minister Denys Monastyrsky told Reuters in an interview.
