    Nothing to see here. Move Along.

    “Energy Minister Volodymyr Demchyshyn said the accident occurred on Friday in one of the six blocks at Zaporizhzhya, Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, and was caused by a short circuit in its power outlet system. The incident was “in no way” linked to power production, he told a news conference.

    “There is no threat … there are no problems with the reactors,” said Demchyshyn, who took up his post in a new government only on Tuesday. He added that he expected the plant to return to normal operations on Dec. 5.

    Perhaps Ukraine is learning from Putin, “We would hate to contaminate you a second time, how bout some “loans” to improve your safety?”
