A Ukrainian MP has warned on Sunday that officials in Kyiv are “preparing for a nuclear explosion” as the situation at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant in Zaporizhzia remains “very dangerous.”

The Ukrainian intelligence chief and President Volodymyr Zelensky have warned that the nuclear facility has been heavily mined at four out of the six reactors and trucks are full of explosives.

On Friday workers at Zaporizhzia nuclear facility who are employed by Rosatom have been urged to “evacuate” by “July 5.”

Kira Rudik MP told Sky News on Sunday that “we are getting much more worried” after President Zelensky warned a “serious threat” remains at the nuclear facility.

Ukrainian spy chief has warned of a “global incident” as Russia has finished their preparations at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant for an “attack.”

Rudik said, “I still cannot process that in the 21st century this is what is happening. We are preparing for a nuclear explosion and the whole world is watching and there is nothing that can be done.”

The Ukrainian MP said that it is “unprecedented” that Moscow are not allowing the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) officials to not be allowed in specific parts of the facility to carry out full safety checks.

She then warned that the threat of an attack on the nuclear power plant is a “”bargaining chip and a way to threaten the world.”

IAEA director-general Rafael Mariano Grossi said they are taking this “very seriously” and he asked for experts to “look into this matter and request the access they need for doing their job.”

He added, “Until now they have not observed any mines or other explosives. Further access will still be needed.”

Kyrylo Budanov, head of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of Kyiv’s Ministry of Defence, described two chilling scenarios which could see a nuclear incident, and warned that the situation “has never been as severe as now.”

Budanov said an explosion will create a “Grey Zone” that will stop Ukrainian forces advancing, the second will see Vladimir Putin using the nuclear disaster as “preventative measure” to freeze the line of contact by stopping the counter-offensive.

Taras Tyshchenko, a local health administrator, told The Independent, “We knew the Russians could blow up the Kakhovka dam and we know they could target ZNPP.

“This incident will not be a local or even a national one. It is a global incident.”

However, the US Senate has formerly introduced a resolution which warns that there will be dire consequences for Russia or Belarus should tactical nuclear weapons be used.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and Democrat Richard Blumenthal warned that the “threat” that Russia will use a “nuclear device is real.”

The two Senators warned that if any radioactive parts enter the territory of NATO then this should be considered an attack and Article 5 should be triggered.
