Ukraine: Fires near Chernobyl spread RadiationUkraine | March 22, 2022, Tuesday // 11:03| views
The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine warned that at least 7 different fires were burning on the territory of Chernobyl. They were spotted by satellite images of the European Space Agency's Sentinel-2 satellite.
“The fire was probably caused by Russian bombing, for example with a shell. It may be arson,” the statement said.
According to the Classification Signs for Emergencies, the criteria for fire in the exclusion zone should not exceed the volume of 0.05-0.2 sq. km, but in the current state of the fire zone, these figures are ten times higher.
In this regard, radiation risks increase within a radius of 10 km around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
