US Energy Secretary on the Imperiled Ukrainian Nuclear Plant | GZERO World

"We are in the fog of war," says US Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm about the increasingly dangerous situation at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine, which is currently caught in the crossfire of Russian and Ukrainian fighting. Granholm says the Department of Energy is monitoring the situation closely and has "no indications of increased radiation levels right now" but added that the situation could change at any moment.

Even if disaster is averted this time, Granholm believes that a line has been crossed: "No country should turn a nuclear power plant into an active war zone." Her comments were part of a larger conversation with Ian Bremmer which will air in an upcoming episode of GZERO World.
