The EU and 42 countries demand Russia demilitarize the Zaporizhzhia NPP.
The EU and 42 countries called on Russia to immediately withdraw its troops from the Zaporizhia NPP, and the entire territory of Ukraine announced the EU commission. According to the statement, the EU endorses the importance of the fundamental Seven Pillars of Nuclear Safety and Security as outlined by IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi. Russia’s control of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant – Europe’s largest nuclear power plant – poses a significant threat to these principles. The statement’s supporters emphasized that the disinformation tactics of the Russian Federation have not misled the world. “We strongly condemn Russia’s use of disinformation in its attempts to justify its illegal actions in Ukraine,” the document states. “The international community will hold Russia accountable for its aggression, and Russia must bear the full punishment for its illegal actions in Ukraine.”
