    As for "practical," causing a nuke to meltdown is as easy as it gets. a few mortar rounds into the cooling tower and cooling pipes would do it. Or just blow the power source. The trick with a functional nuke isn't making it meltdown. It is preventing it from doing so. Blowing storage tanks is easy enough. Scorched earth tactics historically in general are a successful tactic.
    It would be among the most nefarious and sinister acts in human history and consign Ukraine to national suicide.

    I said practically because there are an enormous amount of variables that would come into play, just to name one there are more than just easterly winds in Europe you'd be blowing radiation onto EU and NATO countries. It's also unlikely that you would do the kind of catastrophic damage to Russia that you are envisioning.

    Fight Russia with everything you got. If so, how?

    Capitulate. Realize there is no way to win and turn all of Ukraine over to Russia to spare lives, conceding all Ukraineans are again defeated and subjugated people?

    Flee. Find another country as a safe haven and get your family, your friends and you and get out of there?

    Stick it out. Just ride the wave however it goes?
    Try to negotiate a better quality of service agreement regarding regional security concerns.
