MOSCOW, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov expressed concern over the security of nuclear power plants in Ukraine.
"Ukraine is operating five nuclear power plants; a total of 15 nuclear reactors. They require unique skills from the operators who have to train for at least ten years," Zyuganov said. "In the present situation, when law-enforcement bodies have scattered, there is no reliable protection there, cannot be in the near future."
"Our specialists, together with European ones, should consider measures of protection, as this concerns the security of not only Ukraine, but also Russia and Belarus," the Communist leader added.
Commenting on the situation in Ukraine in general, the KPRF leader believes that "political Chernobyl has broken out there," which is "no less dangerous than nuclear one."
"In effect, the whole power vertical has collapsed. I insist on the Foreign Ministry immediately raising the issue about the situation in Ukraine at the Security Council and on the Russian president convening the State Council to discuss the problem, otherwise, we'll be late again," Zyuganov said.
