How Stupid Does One Have to be to Shell a Nuclear Power Plant?

The Russians are apparently, and sadly, that stupid.

Russian forces shelled Europe’s largest nuclear plant early Friday in the battle for control of a crucial energy-producing city, and the power station was on fire.

Plant spokesman Andriy Tuz told Ukrainian television that shells were falling directly on the Zaporizhzhia plant and had set fire to one of the facility’s six reactors. That reactor is under renovation and not operating, but there is nuclear fuel inside, he said.

The prevailing winds in Ukraine this time of year is from the west; any fallout from a burning reactor will spread over Russia. Which will serve the bastards right.

Putin's leaving one hell of a legacy.

It gets worse as if Russia "wins" they inherit all including Chernobyl and its maintenance (clean up, keeping people out and maintaining the lump of concrete
known as the sarcophagus as well as the ground under it.

The "New Safe Containment' has enclosed the sarcophagus since 2016.

That’s a different reactor complex, I believe.
