Both sides blame each other for the incident ? They will keep playing with nuclear power over there sooner than later you think. Russia has pulled out of the salt II agreement on nuclear inspections also.

    AND the rest of the world. They supply a great deal of wheat to other parts of the world. IF this affects that, then it will be bad for us all

    Lots of 'spooks' knew it was going to turn ugly but couldn't find anyone who would listen. Russia isn't(wasn't) dumb/crazy enough to destroy what they needed most-farmland and industrial facilities with a nuke. Unfortunately, their short range bumbling did more damage than what they'd expected plus buggered ANY chances of working favorably with their highly productive neighbor(s).

    Updated! This could be the last straw for NATO to get involved.

    Putin warns Macron of ‘catastrophe’ at Ukraine nuclear plant

    According to French President Emmanuel Macron’s office, Putin had “reconsidered the demand” that the International Atomic Energy Agency travel through Russia to the site, after the Russian leader himself warned fighting there could bring about a “catastrophe”.

    It specified that Putin had dropped his demand that the IAEA team travel to the site via Russia, saying it could arrive via Ukraine.

    Meanwhile, UN chief Antonio Guterres urged Moscow’s forces occupying the Zaporizhzhia plant in south Ukraine not to disconnect the facility from the grid and potentially cut supplies to millions of Ukrainians.

    A flare-up in fighting around the Russian-controlled nuclear power station — with both sides blaming each other for attacks — has raised the spectre of a disaster worse than in Chernobyl.

    The current sitting POTUS is has the potential to create a disaster far far worse.
