The Ukrainian government has issued apocalyptic guidelines on what its citizens should do in the event of a nuclear incident.

A public broadcast yesterday informed the public that loud sirens from church bells indicate a nuclear event and train horns mean an evacuation.

A new poster has also been released by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine detailing what people should pack in case of evacuation in such conditions.

Roughly translated into English, the title reads: “Emergency kit for evacuation from the area of ​​a radiation accident.”

Underneath it says: “The evacuation zone will be determined by the authorities based on the forecast of the extent of the accident.”

Items recommended for packing include:

  • Important documents and copies thereof (e.g. ID card, passport)
  • face mask or respirator
  • A first aid kit and a week’s supply of essential medicines
  • wet wipes
  • Change of clothes and shoes
  • A minimum supply of food and water, which must be in sealed packaging

The poster also warns against “tightly wrapping the suitcase or backpack with cling film or tape”.

“This will greatly facilitate the process of decontamination at sanitation stations,” it said.

Some residents have reported being given iodine tablets, which can help protect the body from high levels of radiation.

The dystopian-looking warnings come amid fears of a “serious threat” at Ukraine’s Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, which is currently under Russian control.

Speaking to the nation last night, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned that what appears to be explosives are on the roof of the power plant.

He said: “Now we have information from our intelligence service that Russian troops have placed explosive-like objects on the roof of several power units of the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant.”

Zaporizhia, located in the southeast of the country, is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe and one of the ten largest in the world.

Experts say it’s “unlikely,” but if a nuclear event does occur, the range of radiation is expected to be several kilometers.

Queues are forming at the border with Moldova as more Ukrainians try to escape the threat, Sky News reported.

Soldiers were seen conducting nuclear response exercises near the power plant last week.
