After the occupiers attacked the ZNPP, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine, demanded that harsh sanctions be imposed on the Russian nuclear sector.

Quote: "Today, the occupiers created another extremely risky situation for everyone in Europe – they fired on the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, twice in one day. This is the largest nuclear power plant on our continent, and any attack on this facility is an open, brazen crime and an act of terror.

Russia must bear responsibility for the very fact of creating a threat to the nuclear power plant. And this is not just another argument in favour of recognizing Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism.

This is an argument in favour of applying tough sanctions against the entire Russian nuclear industry – from Rosatom to all related companies and individuals. This is purely a matter of safety.

A country which creates nuclear threats to other nations is definitely not capable of using nuclear technologies safely".
