Russian shelling causes fire at one of Europe's largest nuclear power plants in Ukraine

Ukrainian President Wlodimir Zelensky on April 4 accused the Russian military of trying to repeat the tragedy of Chernobyl by appealing to "nuclear terrorism" in its attack on the Zaporizha nuclear power plant.

In a video message, Zelensky said, "No other country but Russia has attacked a nuclear power plant. This is the first time in human history. A terrorist state has now carried out nuclear terrorism.

He added: "If there is an explosion, it is the end of everything. It will be the end of Europe. No one will be able to live in Europe. If Europe doesn't act immediately, we won't be able to stop the Russians," he continued.
