Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba had warned that the fire posed a significant risk.

“If it explodes, it will be 10 times bigger than Chernobyl!” he said on Twitterreferring to the disaster at this nuclear site in 1986. “The Russians must immediately cease fire and allow firefighters to establish a safe zone,” he said.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he will request an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council over the fire at the complex, according to his office.

Rafael Mariano Grossi, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said on Twitter that he had spoken with Ukrainian officials about the situation at the plant. He called for the fighting to stop and warned of “grave danger” if the reactors were hit.

The American Nuclear Society condemned the Russian attack on the reactor complex.

Earlier, Mr Grossi said ‘a large number of Russian tanks and infantry’ entered Enerhodar, a town near the plant, and infantry troops were ‘moving straight’ to the reactor site .

Mayor Dmitry Orlov told a local radio station that heavy fighting between Russian and Ukrainian soldiers had raged near the factory, according to the station’s Twitter account. The mayor called for an immediate ceasefire.

the Zaporizhia nuclear complex, on the Dnieper about 160 km north of Crimea, is the largest in Europe. According to the International Atomic Energy Agencyits six reactors produce a total of 6,000 megawatts of electricity.

By comparison, the Chernobyl plant in northern Ukraine produced 3,800 megawatts, about a third less. (One megawatt, one million watts, is enough to light 10,000 hundred-watt bulbs.) All four reactors at the Chernobyl complex were shut down after one suffered a catastrophic fire and meltdown in 1986 .
