In a world overwhelmed by post-pandemic problems, with a terrible widespread drought, with instability in several important markets raising concerns of a new global economic crisis, Russia thought to top up the list by unleashing one of the most barbaric aggressions that Europe has seen against the peaceful state of Ukraine.
And where there is no reason and no compassion for the human life, unrepairable mistakes are often made. Not long ago, the Chernobyl disaster took a heavy human life tool, that we still pay today. It indirectly led to the collapse of the (same) Soviet Union, demonstrating a part of its corrupted and unsustainable system.
Now, the nuclear plant of Zaporojie heavily loaded with nuclear fuel lies in the crossfire, being used as a strategic shield by the Russian aggressors. They can launch countless attacks with minimum chances of retaliation from the Ukrainian counterpart, given the high risks of damaging the plant. Simply put, the site a nuclear power plant is simply not the place to play war games especially when we know we are incapable of handling an highly probable disaster.
Besides showing our concerns on this topic, we contributed with sensors to help monitoring the location. We donated 5 uRADMonitor model A automated radiation sensors, that can operate without human intervention to give us real time monitoring of the background radiation levels.
The irony is that it is very hard to install them, given all the chaos and destruction in the nearby cities. With help from Saveecobot Ukraine, the sensors will be installed in some of the best possible locations close to the plant.
We hope to see them operational soon . Even more, we look forward to the day the shameful aggression is put to an end.
