Ukraine’s fears of nuclear disaster have reached new heights as Russia is accused of holding Europe’s largest nuclear plant, Zaporizhzhia, “hostage”. President Volodymyr Zelensky has demanded that Russian forces vacate the area, as he believes the plant’s safety cannot be guaranteed while they remain. He said: “Holding a nuclear power station hostage for more than a year – this is surely the worst thing that has ever happened in the history of European or worldwide nuclear power.” Ukraine’s leader also pledged to liberate all of the country’s territory, announcing: “We defend and will defend every part of Ukraine. The time will come and we will liberate every city, every village of our state. And we will hold the occupier to account for every shot against Ukraine, for every meanness against Ukrainians.”
