Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre (AP) says that Norway condemns the fighting at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant. 

“The attack on Europe’s largest nuclear power plant is very serious. Fights at and near a nuclear power plant are very dangerous. We strongly condemn these irresponsible actions by the Russian authorities,” Støre said.

He pointed out that no increased radiation has been observed, but that it is a serious situation.

“I understand well that people are both worried and scared, but there is no immediate danger that Norway will be affected. We monitor the situation closely, and we are well prepared if something should happen,” he said.

“Many people are wondering what to do if a nuclear accident happens in Ukraine. The Directorate for Radiation Protection and Nuclear Preparedness has good information on its website about how to protect yourself in the event of a nuclear accident,” he added.

  1. Someone needs to advise Jonas that if we don’t start following our heads instead of our emotions and instead BACK OFF – and Norway is NOT helping by fanning the Ukraine holocaust’s flames with arms shipments which will only escalate the weapons used and innocent deaths and suffering – there is going to be THE intercontinental thermonuclear “accident.”

    I know he is distraught, but he *must* still THINK.
