Russia has seized control over the nuclear and radiation facilities at Chernobyl, a move that Ukrainian officials told Motherboard constitutes a war crime and has already kicked up radioactive dust. In a statement to Motherboard, the Ukrainian government said that employees at the facility have been “detained” by Russian forces and are not being allowed to rotate through normal safety protocols.
The Ukrainian government told Motherboard that they are worried about a “planetary environmental disaster.”
The Russian army entered the 1,000-kilometer invasion zone on Thursday from the border with Belarus and quickly captured the area. Olga Stefanishyna, deputy prime minister for European and Euro-Atlantic integration of Ukraine, said on Twitter Friday morning that Ukraine has lost control over nuclear and radiation facilities within Chernobyl.
“This constitutes a great threat to the whole continent,” Stefanishyna tweeted, referencing a section of the Geneva Conventions that the move has violated. Article 56 of the Additional Protocol of 1977 explicitly forbids attack on nuclear facilities and any other “works or installations containing dangerous forces, namely dams, dykes.”
“Nuclear power plants & other objects near, even military ones, must not be attacked, as this could result in the release of hazardous powers & subsequent heavy casualties,” Stefanishyna tweeted. “These violations can be considered as war crimes in the case of grievous losses among the civilian population.”
The Tribulation is commencing…
Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
