Fears for all Ukraine’s nuclear plants after emergency shutdowns

Ukraine's chief inspector for nuclear safety

There are growing fears that Russia’s relentless targeting of Ukraine’s electricity grid will threaten the safety of the country’s nuclear power plants, in the wake of an unprecedented emergency shutdown on Wednesday.

Petro Kotin, the president of Ukraine’s nuclear power company, Energoatom, said that all safety mechanisms had worked as intended on Wednesday, but two generators were damaged in the process, delaying the restart of two reactors. Kotin said repeated shutdowns caused by more Russian missile attacks could cause extensive damage, with a potentially severe impact on Ukraine’s power supply and possibly on nuclear safety.

Russia kept up its onslaught on Ukrainian cities on Saturday with an attack on a residential area in the city of Dnipro which injured six people and destroyed seven houses, according to the governor of the Dnipropetrovsk region, Valentyn Reznichenko.

Heavy rain triggers landslides on Italian island, up to 12 missing as buildings collapse

Landslides on Italy's Ischia islandHeavy rainfall triggered landslides early Saturday on the southern Italian island of Ischia that left as many as 12 people missing as it cut a muddy swath through a port town, collapsing buildings and sweeping cars into the sea.

The force of the mud sliding down mountainsides was strong enough to send cars and buses into the sea at the port of Casamicciola, on the north end of the island. Streets were impassable and mayors on the island urged people to stay at home. At least 100 people were reported stranded.

There was confusion over the death toll. Italian Vice Premier Matteo Salvini initially said that eight people had been confirmed dead. The interior minister later said that no deaths had yet been confirmed, while 10-12 were missing.

Greta Thunberg joins climate lawsuit against Sweden

Greta Thunberg

Climate activist Greta Thunberg joined hundreds of other youth activists in Stockholm on Friday to file a lawsuit against the Swedish government over its alleged inaction on climate change.

“Today on Black Friday is the perfect day to sue the state over its insufficient climate policies,” Thunberg said on Twitter. “So that’s what we did. See you in court!”

The 19-year-old was one of more than 600 young people who signed on to the lawsuit, which was organized and filed by the Swedish youth-led organization Aurora. The group marched to Stockholm District Court on Friday to file the suit.

“Sweden has never treated the climate crisis like a crisis,” Aurora spokesperson Anton Foley said in a statement, per The Associated Press. “Sweden is failing in its responsibility and breaking the law.”

Freezing Ukraine gradually restores power after Russian strikes on grid

Freezing Ukraine gets power graduallyUkrainian authorities on Friday gradually restored power to millions of people left in the dark after the most devastating Russian air strikes so far, aided by the reconnection of the country's four nuclear plants.

National power grid operator Ukrenergo said that as of 7 p.m. local time (1700 GMT), 30% of electricity supplies were still out, and asked people to cut back on their energy use.

"Phased restoration of the power system is continuing. Repairs crews are working around the clock," it said in a statement on Telegram.

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy went to the town of Vyshhorod just north of Kyiv on Friday to look at a four-storey building damaged by a Russian missile. He also visited one of the many emergency centres that have been set up to provide heat, water, electricity and mobile communications.

"Together we will be able to go through this difficult path for our country. We will overcome all challenges and we will definitely win," he said in a video statement.

Iranian advisers killed aiding Russians in Crimea, says Kyiv

Ukraine Sec. of Nat'l Security Danillov

Ukraine’s top security official has confirmed that Iranian military advisers have been killed in Crimea, and warned that any other Iranians on occupied Ukrainian territory in support of Moscow’s invasion would also be targeted.

Oleksiy Danilov, secretary of Ukraine’s national security and defence council, said Iranians were present in Crimea to help Russia pilot the Shahed-136 armed drones supplied by the Tehran government, but did not say how many Ukraine had killed.

Reports in the Israeli press in October said that 10 were killed because of Ukrainian military strikes in occupied Crimea. Danilov made it clear that any further Iranian military presence would be targeted.

“You shouldn’t be where you shouldn’t be,” Danilov said, in an interview in Kyiv. “They were on our territory. We didn’t invite them here, and if they collaborate with terrorists and participate in the destruction of our nation we must kill them.”

An Earthquake Took a Heavy Toll on Children. Shoddy Construction Could Be to Blame.

Indonesia earthquake

Like most other children across Indonesia, Dewi Hani, 4, typically spent her afternoons studying at an Islamic school. She had been learning to write the Arabic alphabet in a notebook that she kept inside her blue backpack, along with a pencil and a Quran.

This Monday afternoon was no different — until the moment when a 5.6 magnitude earthquake flattened structures in the area. Hani was one of five students killed when her two-story Islamic school collapsed in a village a few dozen miles from Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta.

Hani’s mother, Neng Didah, 34, rushed to the school and saw its second floor sitting on the ground. The first floor — where her daughter studied — had disappeared.

“I suddenly felt weak,” Ms. Neng said on Thursday in the village, Sarampad. “I heard voices calling ‘Mama, mama, mama,’ but I didn’t recognize any of them.”

Infrastructure hit. 36 killed

Russia has fired dozens of missiles at Ukraine in a new onslaught against the country’s civilian infrastructure, killing at least six people in residential areas, as Moscow once more tried to retaliate for its military defeats by targeting the population.

Ukraine’s armed forces estimated that Russia launched 70 cruise missiles, of which 51 were intercepted by air defences, in what the army called a “large-scale attack on crucial infrastructure facilities”.
