"Russians continue to commit acts of nuclear terrorism at Ukrainian nuclear power plants. Even the presence of the IAEA inspectors at the Zaporizhzhya NPP site doesn't stop them", the company emphasizes.
Enerhoatom stated that it once again expects the IAEA to take decisive actions to stop russia's aggressive actions against civilian nuclear facilities in Ukraine, to assist in the de-occupation of ZNPP and to establish a nuclear and physical security zone around Ukrainian nuclear power plants.
This week russians also shelled the South Ukrainian Nuclear Power Plant - missiles fell 300 meters from the reactors. Russia does not stop nuclear terrorism, thus endangering not only Ukraine but also other European countries.
