Zelenskyy has repeatedly called on NATO countries to hit Russia.
More recently, in an interview given to Canadian television networks on October 22, Mr Zelenskyy called on the world to hit the Kremlin if Russia hits the “decision center” on Bankova Street, where the office of the Ukrainian president is located.
Ukraine has nuclear industry facilities, the stocks of which could be used to create a “dirty bomb”.
Explanation (sorry for the image, it is from Russia)
▪️ There are three nuclear power plants in operation: the South Ukraine, Khmelnitsky and Rivne nuclear power plants with nine spent nuclear fuel storage pools which contain up to 1,500 tons of enriched uranium oxide at 1 .5%.
▪️ In the decommissioned Chernobyl nuclear power plant with radioactive waste storage facilities, 22,000 spent fuel assemblies containing uranium-238, as well as products related to the operation are uranium-235 and plutonium -239, main component of the nuclear charge;
▪️ The new Vektor radioactive waste treatment facility, the Prydniprovsky chemical plant and the Buriakovka, Podlesny and Rossokha radioactive waste disposal sites could contain more than 50,000 cubic meters of radioactive waste, which could also serve as components for a “dirty bomb”
▪️ The Eastern Mining and Processing Combine produces uranium ore in two of the three mines with a capacity of up to 1,000 tons per year;
▪️ Ukraine also has a scientific base – the Kharkov Institute of Physics and Technology, whose scientists participated in the nuclear program of the USSR, where various experimental facilities, including the Uragan thermonuclear facilities, are still in operation, and the Institute of Nuclear Research of the National Academy of Sciences in Kyiv, where the VVR-M reactor is used for research on high-level radioactive materials.
Ukrainian armed forces made four landing attempts in September and October to seize the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
According to information available to the agency, two Ukrainian organizations have the specific mission of making a “dirty bomb”. The works are in the final phase.
