Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant


Darya Dolzikova, a nuclear expert at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London, takes a similar view. She formulates more carefully: "A catastrophe on the scale of Chernobyl is extremely unlikely." She also emphasizes the safety precautions. The cooling water supplies from the emergency reserve would "suffice for several months", she analyzed after the blasting of the Kachowka dam , which called into question the regular water supply of the nuclear power plant. The power supply from diesel generators has been proven to bridge power failures for significant periods of time.
