In his daily video message, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called for the introduction of sanctions against the Russian nuclear industry due to situation at Zaporozhye NPP.

“Today, the invaders have created another extremely risky situation for everyone in Europe – they fired at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, twice a day,” Zelensky said, recalling that this is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe. “Any shelling of this facility is a frankly daring crime, an act of terror. Russia should be responsible for the very fact of creating a threat to the nuclear power plant,” the President of Ukraine said. He called the shelling of the station “an argument in favor of applying tough sanctions against the entire Russian nuclear industry – from Rosatom to all related companies and individuals.” “This is a purely security issue. Anyone who creates nuclear threats to other nations is definitely not capable of using nuclear technology safely,” Zelensky concluded.
