"They" refers to the highly qualified engineers who are maintaining the plant.
They probably run shifts 24/7 and without replacement at gunpoint, at some point, human error sets in.
Do you know much diesel they have or if supply trucks are on the way and if they could make it in time, run on a mine or get detonated on purpose?
In war, anything is possible.

KYIV, Aug 9 (Reuters) - The head of Ukraine’s state nuclear power firm warned on Tuesday of the
“very high” risks of shelling at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in the Russian-occupied south and said it was vital Kyiv regains control over the facility in time for winter.

New reports of severe fighting and smoke around the facility. People in surrounding cities warned to get off the street and close windows. Both Russians and Ukrainians blaming each other. All uncofirmed ...

👇More Info:
There is no fire at the Zaporizhzhya NPP, including at the second power unit, which was reported by Russian mass media, Energoatom reports.

The radiation background at the station is within the normal range.
"The enemy is spreading yet another fake news to further destabilize the situation around the Zaporozhye NPP and incite panic among the population," the report says.
So Russia says there is a fire and Ukraine says it's fake news. Will have to see...

All we know right now:
  • There is a very large fire at the plant from a far observable distance..
  • Russia said there is a fire at station two..
  • There is a liquid nitrogen leak..
  • The town's around the plant being told to stay indoors and shut their windows..
  • Ukraine is calling this fake news..
So until we can get a visual confirmation of where the fire is burning exactly at the plant or another source beside Russia I wouldn't assume anything.

RT states Ukrine has targeted the concrete storage facilities just before UN council meeting on the plant
Yea okay 🤣. Just like how a month ago Russia bombed the very city the UN chief was in right as he left. Typical.🤦‍♂️

UN meeting called by Russia is going on right now and is discussing the pin holders. UN SC members directly involved in an issue to be sidelined on the subject and not be able to interfere in the work of the council . This would leave China and appointed members to decide the outcome. US, Russia, France and UK be barred from veto action. This has been a standard past action.

It appears like the UN may make a sanctions determination against SC members! Interesting! lol

Ok so fire station is destroyed. Radioactive waste storage area was shelled. The fighting is still ongoing with heavy shelling still. The fire is still burning. While they are still fighting firefighters from outside the power plant can't go in and put it out.

Don't like that there is a sense of a fog of war going on. Until the fighting at and around the power plant stops we won't know much... and best not to speculate.

If something bad happens to that plant, won't Russia get the radioactive blow back as well? Seems stupid to be fighting over it.
Not only that, but that puts the world against them that much more.
I cannot fathom why either side would be doing this. This is intentional and its getting way out of hand.
If this isn't it, the continued shelling WILL eventually get it.
