I can't find this in news
plot twist: it's Saporischschja/Zaporizhia in southeast Ukraine.
Just what the country needed right now.
Block 3 is probably affected, it was already shut down for repairs on monday after repeated power failures.

Are we talking Cherynobl or are we talking a turbine blew out?
Ukraine Prime Minister: There Has Been An Accident At A Ukraine Nuclear Plant - Business Insider
Not good news for them, but not a giant cloud of fallout sweeping across the continent.There are reports that the damage is minor, with no damage to the reactor. Ukraine gets about half its power from nuclear plants.

Whelp, I want something to happen to get this Ferguson crap out of the news but not something like this!

Back in 1986, everything was ok too.
A war is coming, I've seen it in my dreams. Fires sweeping over the Earth, bodies in the streets, cities turned to dust... retaliation.
Hollywood is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until everything you love is dead.
I wonder if the super cool anti-nuclear self-fulfilling prophecy is at work there: Make it impossible to build new nuclear power plants for fear of accidents and say 'I told you so' when plants have problems after they are used for decades longer than initially intended, because they cannot be replaced.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Ukraine Boogaloo
Wasn't a major accident at all. I'm not surprised to see Anti-Nuclear Germany pumping out scare mongering headlines though.
Germany's energy policy was created by 2 apes and a not particularly smart sloth.
Don't get me wrong: nuclear power beats coal and gas plants -- especially coal, which leads to over 10,000 early deaths in the US every year due to direct health effects, never mind the contribution to global warming. That's way worse than even Fukushima.
At the same time, Germany's drive for renewable energy is commendable and we wouldn't see the kind of technological advancements that have happened without their investments. Would those take place if they continued to build nuclear power plants? Probably not. This is a technology that clearly requires some subsidies still, but given the implicit and explicit subsidies provided to other energy generation technologies, I don't see a problem with that.
I'm just as disappointed nothing came out of this.
There is also media coverage, mostly triggered by big power companies, about possible upcoming power shortages. But consensus in the big political parties and among the population is still no nuclear, less coal/gas, more renewable energy.
Besides people who don't want a wind turbine visibile from their living room, because it hurts their feng shui, most people only have issues with the cost of renewable energy against nuclear plants, but that is somewhat unfair, as the cost for renewable energy is clearly visible via the subvention model Germany choose, while the real cost of nuclear reactors is fucking through the roof, but not directly visible.
