The sooner Russia’s nuclear industry is under sanctions, the safer the world will be.
The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyi, spoke with the President of the European Commission, Ursula van der Leyen, in particular about energy support for Ukraine, and informed her about the consequences of the terrorist state’s missile attack on Ukraine.
It was discussed in the evening address of the Head of State on March 9.
“As a result of this strike, the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant was again disconnected from the power supply. This is a critical situation. And Russia is going to deliberately create such critical situations in our nuclear power plants. This means that Russia by definition cannot be a conscientious participant in any relations in the nuclear sector,” Zelensky said.
He expressed his gratitude to Ursula van der Leyen for related assistance and discussed with her pressure on Russia for terrorism.
“The sooner the Russian nuclear industry is sanctioned, the safer the world will be. No terrorist state can be left anywhere in the world to use any nuclear facilities for terrorism,” he added.
At the same time, specialists restored the power supply of Zaporizhzhia NPP, which was interrupted by Russian missile attacks on March 9.
IAEA Director General Raphael Grossi called for “all IAEA staff to spring into action to prevent this from happening again.”
