    Seems that it’s easier to react than to prepare.

    Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine currently under Russian control that poses a serious dilemma for NATO et al.

    The “cartoon” is incorrect in that none of the principal characters actually depicted are insensitive to danger – the U.N. (not depicted) has their nuclear people “on site” it’s just that the Russian Republic (also not depicted) is trying to use the site as a “bargaining” chip to blackmail the world and the characters depicted can’t allow that.

    It’s not the Western Nations who are the bad actors here. It’s Putin’s Russian Orcs that are using the Zap Nuke to blackmail the world and try to provoke NATO. What does anyone think that NATO can do? Put boots on the ground in Ukraine? That gives Putin exactly what he wants and the opportunity to say”I told you so”. The only entities that can do anything are the Ukrainians an the UN. The Russians have already set demolition charges around the plant in case they are forced to withdraw. It’s guesses for grabs what they’ll actually do, but based on their past actions, it probably won’t be good. The only thing the West can do is to keep supplying Ukraine and hope they can somehow come up with a plan to neutralize the Russian invaders without them blowing the facilities.

    I doubt the Russians would actually destroy that plant, simply because prevailing winds would blow the resulting fallout over their own territory, and it doesn’t exactly help their pariah-nation status.

    However, using it as a shield for an artillery fire base is much more likely.
