QUOTE: “We are in an unprecedented situation. For the first time a war is being fought in a region where there are operating nuclear reactors. This presents an extreme risk to human life unlike anything we have seen in previous wars.” That’s a statement from Beyond Nuclear, of Feb. 25, 2022.
For a relatively small country the nuclear statistics are impressive: Ukraine operates 15 reactors, ranking 7th in the world in 2020. The single largest nuclear power plant in Europe is in Ukraine. Ukraine's power sector is the twelfth-largest in the world in terms of installed capacity. 54 gigawatts are providing over 50% of Ukraine’s electricity.

Linda Pentz Gunter presents a list of 6 catastrophes that can befall a nuclear power plant - from taking a direct intentional or accidental missile strike to the collapse of the grid to operating personnel being unable or unwilling to come to work.

Dr. Ira Helfand is part of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapon (ICAN). Helfand also is a co-Founder and past President of Physicians for Social Responsibility.He describes the consequences of nuclear strikes on major cities.

He and Linda Pentz Gunter participated in a Zoom meeting on the topic of War in Eastern Europe: On the Brink of a Humanitarian Disaster. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aPPU2eexnE
They met on February 19, 2022.
