When the press-service of the Ukrainian "Energoatom" was released with not emergency stop message according to its balance sheet constraint of the second unit of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, the news instantly came on a priority place in all news blocks.

Everything was done strictly according to the project schedule and that nothing extraordinary happened. Currently working at the Zaporizhzhya NPP there are four units of six. Another, namely the third unit was stopped last month for 270 days for routine repairs.

and the radiation background in the area of Zaporizhzhya NPP, and the adjoining sanitary-protective zone at the present time is consistent with the natural radiation background.

But nevertheless it is an ordinary message instantly appears in the spotlight of the world media.

And wonder there is, in principle, nothing.

All people, at least more or less informed perfectly clear that the Ukrainian nuclear power in its current state the system is a source of direct threat to the security of the entire European continent.

in order to understand this, one does not need to be "seven spans in a forehead".

Here, for example, take the same Zaporizhzhya NPP, one of the most successful, by the way, in Ukraine, and, for a moment, the largest in Europe. If we talk about it after the project lifetime, at this point in time there should already be a discontinued operation of the first three units. Design life of the VVER-1000/320 "Zaporozhe-4" ends 18 December 2017. "Zaporozhye-5", according to the project needs to be stopped on 14 July 2019. Only launched in 1995, "Zaporozhye-6" can continue to work until October 2025, God give him health, and that everything was all right there.

of Course, "been extended".

But not all.

Of the fifteen nuclear power plants of Ukraine the period of extended operation, only four — ten and twenty years. And here, again, is not surprising: the cost of lifetime extension for one unit of the type that is used in Ukrainian nuclear power an average of 300 million U.S. dollars. No "Energoatom", nor the government of Ukraine of such money, of course, just simply no. And, sorry, is not expected. This means that the extended operation of the units, if it happens to be absolutely formal. The number of emergency situations at nuclear power plants, and so fixed, to put it mildly, a lot and a half-two dozen (!) for the year - will only increase.

it's simple.

All – stress, all, including introduced in 1995, the 6th unit of the Zaporizhzhya NPP (later commissioning is linked to the "moratorium Chernobyl") nuclear power in Ukraine is the legacy of "criminal radyanskoi Vlada". Although built cursed of the current Ukrainian authorities "advice" to last and with giant strength, - everything has, including a purely technical limit.

the Ukrainian nuclear power inherited by those baboons in the inheritance, – simple old. And the last three years, and lives in a permanent state of emergency because of the constant interruptions with the supply of natural gas, the shortage of anthracite: to fill the drop down at times power you have solely due to the "peaceful atom".

And now for the fun: just the day before disconnecting the second unit of the Minister of energy and coal industry of Ukraine Igor Nasalik said that emergency measures on the electricity market provide for the transition of nuclear power units in operation-week of maneuvering.

This, he said, would reduce the losses of heat generation.

this "national-oriented energetic" or did not know due to incomplete qualifications, or simply don't want to know that if occasionally to increase nuclear power generation in the evening and morning surges in electricity consumption will cause serious problems are in themselves of generating capacity. In 2016, these experiments only at the Rivne NPP was twice there's an emergency.

And when very well versed in the confectionery business Ukrainian President Poroshenko says proudly, "I am pleased to announce that we have dramatically increased the share of nuclear energy in the overall energy balance. Was 47%, now rapidly approaching 60%. And millions of tons of coal, which no longer needs Ukraine", - then the rest of the world in the most natural way to become somewhat uncomfortable.
