The amount of enriched uranium and plutonium found on the territory of the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine's Energodar was more than enough. Such volumes could be used for the production of nuclear weapons, Sergey Kondratiev, deputy head of the department at the Institute of Energy and Finance told lenta. ru publication. The discovery calls into question the viability of the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) and Euratom (European Atomic Energy Community).
There were about 30 tons of plutonium and 40 tons of enriched uranium found on the territory of the Zaporizhzhya NPP in the city of Energodar, The Wall Street Journal journalist Lawrence Norman tweeted. The journalist referred to the statement that Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Rafael Grossi made at the Davos Economic Forum.
"Thirty tons of plutonium, 40 tons of enriched uranium is a lot. I even wonder whether there is a mistake in those numbers. Uranium should be enriched to a level above 80 percent for the production of nuclear weapons. Nuclear power units, as a rule, use ordinary uranium enriched up to 2-5 percent. At the same time, the international community was highly concerned when Iran enriched uranium up to 20-25 percent," Kondratiev said.

At first glance, it might seem that NATO is now rallied over the Ukrainian conflict. However, within the alliance there are several groups whose opinions about what is happening are contradictory. British political commentator Douglas Murray writes about this in The Telegraph newspaper.
He distinguishes four camps, the first of which he calls "correct". It is headed by Britain, since it was the UK who foresaw "Russian aggression" and provided Ukraine with support in a timely manner. The second camp is headed by Germany, and those are Europeans who are "compromised by their recent agreements with the Russian Federation".
Murray calls the third camp "Elysian" and puts France at the head:

Former adviser to the US Secretary of Defense Douglas McGregor said that all statements about the possible start of a nuclear war are completely absurd. In his opinion, Washington wants to intimidate the public and provoke panic among the population. The retired colonel is convinced that Russia can only retaliate with a nuclear strike if attacked by the United States.
McGregor also commented on the allocation of colossal US funds for military assistance to Ukraine. Former adviser to the head of the Pentagon noted that the standard of living of Americans has dropped significantly. Despite support from Washington and its allies, the Ukrainian group in Donbass is completely immobilized.
"They control an area of 150 to 200 square miles, they are experiencing serious supply problems, and they only have enough ammunition for a few weeks," McGregor said on the air of the Real America program.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, speaking in Davos, announced the existence of a "plan B" in case he dies. In such a situation, the powers of the President of Ukraine will be assumed by the head of parliament or the prime minister.
The authors of MK suggest that in the current realities, Zelensky's place can be taken by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Valery Zaluzhny.
Zelensky himself appointed Zaluzhny to command the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but now their opinions differ on many issues. So, for example, Zaluzhny stated that it was necessary to save the lives of Ukrainian servicemen, but the Kyiv authorities ordered "to stand to the last." Also, Zaluzhny was against the attack of Ukrainian paratroopers on Zmeiny Island and advocated the removal of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from Severodonetsk and Kramatorsk.
