IAEA + EU Call on Russia to Leave Zaporizhzhya NPP, the Largest Nuclear Power Plant in Europe, to Prevent Disaster

    ISLAMABAD: Monitoring Desk – Following the meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors, the EU, together with Ukraine, Norway, Liechtenstein, and Moldova, called on the Russian Federation to leave the Zaporizhzhya NPP, the largest nuclear power plant in Europe.
    The Kremlin systematically provokes nuclear risks and threats – the Russian army is actually in charge of the territory of the nuclear facility, and IAEA experts cannot enter the power plant areas to check the conditions for compliance with nuclear safety.
    Nuclear terror has become Putin’s favorite tool of blackmail – shelling of the Zaporizhzhya NPP is carried out as the Russian army’s actions at the LBS once again reach a dead end. Thus, the Kremlin is trying to put pressure on the international community in order to negotiate certain political concessions.

    The Situation at the ZNPP Is Rapidly Worsening -High Risk of a Nuclear Disaster

    However, in the case of provocations at the Zaporizhzhya NPP, the whole of Europe is at risk – the blowing up of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, carried out by the Russians in June of this year, confirms that no one in the Kremlin is guided by common sense – Putin does not take into account either losses or possible environmental consequences that threaten millions civilians of Ukraine and neighboring countries.
    Therefore, putting pressure on a terrorist state is a way to prevent nuclear blackmail – a threat to Europe. Comprehensive sanctions, which have a detrimental effect on the Russian economy, must increase and force Russia to withdraw from the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant – this is the only way to prevent the largest radiation disaster in Europe since the Chernobyl accident.
