Zaporizhzhya blast would be 10 times worse than Chernobyl — Ukraine minister

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister says an explosion at the Zaporizhzhya power plant would be 10 times larger than the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

“If it blows up, it will be 10 times larger than Chornobyl! Russians must IMMEDIATELY cease the fire, allow firefighters, establish a security zone!” Dmytro Kuleba tweets.

Reports indicate that Russian shelling hit administrative areas, but several power units have been shut down.

Firefighters have apparently been unable to reach the site due to ongoing fighting, and on a live video, the fire appears to be growing.
