Dukes of nukes? Dmitry Suslov, Deputy Director at the Center for Comprehensive European and Intl. Studies at HSE

Never before has an operational nuclear power station been in the midst of an active war zone or changed hands as a result of it. Never before has a distinction between civil and military use of nuclear technology, between a functioning reactor and a ticking time bomb, been so blurred.
