Russia’s ‘Reckless’ Siege of Nuclear Plant Has Europe Worried

There is no doubt whatsoever that the Russian army is a reckless, violent mess at this point, having been largely embarrassed by their own misfortunes during the invasion of Ukraine.

From the very onset of the unethical and illegal action, Russia has been failing, and miserably.  This could be on account of the fact that they had to trick teenaged soldiers into  the plan, with a great many of them surrendering or abandoning the military right away.

Now there are reports that the Russian army has taken control of Europe’s largest nuclear plant, and have done so in a reckless manner.

Russian forces took control of Europe’s largest nuclear power plant on Friday after their attack on the site sparked a fire and fears of a nuclear meltdown, but seemingly released no radiation.

The blaze at the Zaporizhzhia plant, in southeast Ukraine, was extinguished early Friday but not before it spread concerns about the potential for catastrophic fallout across the continent.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has raised the specter of nuclear war in Europe, said Friday that he had “no bad intention” toward neighboring countries but warned them against doing anything that might “escalate the situation.”

Russia has appeared to have little remorse for any of their actions during this invasion, (or for the invasion itself), and so there are legitimate fears regarding their potential exploitation of nuclear power or weapons to gain an advantage in Europe.
