Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has said Russia’s attack on the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant could have resulted in devastation equivalent to “6 Chernobyl”.

The 1986 nuclear accident in Chernobyl, Ukraine, is considered the world’s worst nuclear disaster.

Addressing the people of Ukraine on television, Zelensky said, “People of Ukraine, we survived the night that could stop history – the history of Ukraine, the history of Europe.”

Addressing the people of Russia, the President of Ukraine said: “How is this even possible? Didn’t we (Ukraine and Russia) fight the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster together in 1986?

Zelensky appealed to the Russian people to “get out into the streets and tell their government that they want to stay alive”.

Zelensky says that he is in contact with the leaders of different countries of the world. Ukraine’s president says leaders of other countries are shocked by the attack on the nuclear plant.

Zelensky has called for a no-fly zone over Ukraine and additional sanctions against Russia. He said, “Radiation does not know where Russia is, radiation does not recognize the country’s border.”
