"Even if it is not a direct attack on the plant, the risk of an accident due to power or water failure or human error is very high," says Darya Dolzikova, an expert on weapons of mass destruction at the British research institute Royal United Services Institute (RUSI). There are systems that help to cope with such scenarios and hopefully prevent an accident. "But there is also a lot of leeway for Russia to exploit some of these vulnerabilities if it wanted to cause an incident," the expert said in an interview with the Tagesspiegel.
