Klitschko Warns of Nuclear Threat, Calls for End to War

Wladimir Klitschko took on social media that he fears that artillery fired by the Russian army will hit Ukrainian nuclear plants.

On the 13th day of the war, the priority continues to be the evacuation of civilians. However, the Ukrainian government accuses Moscow of not respecting the announced ceasefires and attacking humanitarian corridors.

“If this war in Ukraine is not STOPPED NOW the world will face another Chernobyl/Fukushima combined.” posted Klitschko.

“Ukraine has 4 nuclear power plants and Russian army is shooting rockets and bombing right next to it. Don’t look away, STOP the Russian invasion NOW!!!” he added.

Ukraine”s ambassador to Washington Mykhailo Podolyak asked for help on Thursday, according to the New York Times. The ambassador claimed that at least 100 Ukrainian soldiers had already been killed by Russia, as well as civilians, and that the Chernobyl disaster site was under attack.

“It is impossible to say that the Chernobyl nuclear power plant is safe after a completely senseless attack by the Russians,” Podolyak said.

Recently, Klitschko appeared in a video alongside his brother Vitali Klitschko, also a former heavyweight champion and now the mayor of Kiev, urging international partners to look at the tragedy in Ukraine and help them in some way form.

But, Klitschko, who holds the longest cumulative heavyweight title reign of all time, insists sport can play a crucial role in the war by outlawing Vladimir Putin ’s Russia.

“If you take away sporting competition the athletes will ask their leader, ‘Why will nobody compete against us?’ I repeat, this is not against the athletes, it’s in the name of peace in Ukraine.” Klitschko said.

Klitschko along with his brother, Vitali, was one of the best heavyweight champions in history. He announced his retirement on August 3, 2017, ending a 21-year professional career in which he competed in more heavyweight title bouts than anyone.
