Recep Erdoan, the president of Turkey, and Antonio Guterres, the head of the UN, have both issued warnings about the risks of the situation at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear facility.
Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine, has accused Russia of using the greatest military complex in Europe as “nuclear blackmail.”
According to local officials, Russia is trying to use this situation to compel Ukraine and other nations to agree with its demands.
According to Ukraine, Russia has stationed some 500 troops at the facility, and they are using it as a launching pad for attacks on Ukrainian communities.
On the other side, Russia disputes the charges and asserts that its soldiers are in reality guarding the plant.
Fears of a nuclear disaster have been stoked for days by Russia and Ukraine accusing one another of firing close to the facility. Since the factory is off-limits, it is challenging to independently confirm the claims.
The facility has been occupied by Russia since the beginning of March, although Ukrainian experts continue to run it.
They are under pressure, and there are rumours that some of them have been assaulted, tortured, and jailed.
UN chief: It would be suicidal to damage the Zaporizhzhia plant.
Damage to the Ukrainian nuclear power facility at Zaporizhzhia. It is seized by Russia, is described by UN head Antonio Guterres as “suicide.”
After meetings in Lviv, Guterres told reporters that the situation at the facility had him “gravely concerned”. Also that it needed to be demilitarised.
“We must be honest; any possible harm to Zaporizhzhia is suicide,” he declares.
According to Guterres, “agreement is urgently needed to restore Zaporizhzhia’s exclusively civilian infrastructure and to assure the area’s safety” and that “the facility must not be utilised as part of [any] military action.”
