Dressed in white and yellow protective suits and armed with devices to detect radiation levels, Ukrainian emergency workers took part in a drill Thursday to prepare for a potential risk of radiation leakage from the Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.
Dozens of civilians joined the drill on the outskirts of the city of Zaporizhzhia, located around 100 kilometers (62 miles) from the nuclear power plant, Europe’s largest.
In a tent set up to provide first aid, emergency workers practiced hosing people down with soap and going through the motions of administering treatment to individuals who play-acted victims from possible radiation-affected areas.
Russia occupied the plant in the early stages of the war. Over the past year, it has become a focal point of concern as Russia and Ukraine accuse each other of shelling the plant. Of course it is rather difficult to imagine that Russians are shelling a plant they already occupy.
This is why we insist since nearly one year (Who wants a nuclear disaster in Ukraine? The role of the Black International | Defend Democracy Press) that a nuclear provocation by the western party of war is a distinct possibillity. Faced with the possibillity of not being able to win the war, they probably are preparing a provocation in order to escalate it.
All that shows also the criminal character of the policy of enormous misinformation followed by western media in order not to shake western support for NATO.s war.
