    In the West they pose a scenario for the entry of NATO into the conflict in Ukraine

    “Any deliberate damage leading to a possible radiation leak from the Ukrainian nuclear reactor would be a violation of NATO Article 5,” said a British member of parliament.

    Several Western politicians have stated that a radiation leak at the Zaporozhie nuclear power plant as a result of the bombing could be a pretext for NATO to start fighting in Ukraine.

    “Let’s make it clear now. Any deliberate damage leading to a possible radiation leak in the Ukrainian nuclear reactor would be a violation of NATO Article 5,” wrote this Friday on his Twitter account Tobias Ellwood, Member of the United Kingdom Parliament.

    For his part, the member of the US House of Representatives, Adam Kinzinger, shared Ellwood’s post and indicated that “this is not even up for debate.” “Any leak will kill people in NATO countries, that’s automatic Article 5,” she added.

    The aforementioned article of the North Atlantic Treaty contemplates that an attack on a NATO member is considered an attack on all its members and would mean that the States that are part of the organization adopt military actions.

    Attacks on the Zaporozhye nuclear plant intensified in August. The Russian Ministry of Defense denounced this Thursday that the objectives of the bombing of the plant by the Armed Forces of Ukraine are create an exclusion zone of up to 30 kilometers and accuse Russia of nuclear terrorism.
