Russian forces are firing rockets at a SECOND nuclear facility.
Missiles hammered Kharkiv physics institute, which has an atomic reactor inside.
The attack happened just two days after an attack on Zaporizhzhia power plant.
“Russian forces are firing rockets at a physics institute in the city of Kharkiv that contains nuclear material and a reactor which could lead to a ‘large-scale ecological disaster’ if hit,” reports Daily Mail.
Ukraine’s national security service said that the Russians were firing at the Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology from Grad launchers.
“Missiles fired from Grad launchers do not have precise targeting, raising concern that one could damage the reactor and release deadly radiation across Europe,” reports Daily Mail.
“Ukrainian foreign minister Emine Dzheppar warned that the science institute houses the Neutron Source nuclear research facility and contains 37 nuclear fuel cells in its core,” according to Daily Mail.
“Ukrainian authorities released footage from inside the control room of the nuclear plant that shows an announcer begging Russian soldiers to stop shooting at the plant,” reports Daily Mail.
“Stop shooting at a nuclear dangerous facility. Stop shooting immediately! You threaten the security of the whole world!” the announcer said.
“The work of the vital organs of the Zaporizhzhia station may be disrupted. It will be impossible for us to restore it,” the announcer continues in desperation.
