87

Russian Deputy Defense Minister Pankov said on the 9th local time that Ukrainian nationalists carried out an extremely dangerous act of provocation, attacking the lines and substations that power the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

Russian experts have moved quickly to switch to backup diesel generators to power the plant, but Ukraine has sought to delay any repairs and restoration of power to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Pankov believes that this once again proves that the nationalists act with absolute purpose and provocation.
