Maria Zakhrova: "We are warning Zelensky; a major nuclear accident threatens"

The spokeswoman of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs published a statement addressing the Kyiv authorities. She stated that the situation at the Zaporizhia nuclear plant, the largest in Europe, is causing increasing concern.

She claims that she was "escalated by the Ukrainian authorities" stating that Kyiv is "spreading misinformation about the alleged influence of Russian representatives at the power plant on ensuring its safety."

"We have repeatedly emphasized that Russia has shown the greatest responsibility regarding Ukrainian nuclear facilities and has done everything in its power to ensure not only an adequate level of nuclear and physical security, but also the greatest possible transparency in this matter," Zakharova said.

"We are warning the Zelenskiy regime..."

"The disruption of the visit benefited the regime in Kyiv and its Western sponsors, who were not satisfied that the director general, agency experts and international representatives involved in the mission would have the opportunity to see the real situation in NE Zaporizhzhya and see for themselves the correctness of its functioning," he says.

Zakharova. She attacked the Kiev regime for violating the security of the nuclear plant. "After the interruption of the visit, Kiev's armed provocations against the nuclear plant increased manifold: drone attacks on the territory of the power plant, as well as actions aimed at intimidating its staff.

"The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has repeatedly reported these incidents to the IAEA," says Zakharova. In the end, Zakharova concluded that Ukraine's actions have violated all seven principles of nuclear safety formulated by the IAEA Director General, ignoring the resolutions of the IAEA General Conferences of 1985 and 1990, which state that any armed attack or threat of attack to nuclear facilities violates the principles of the UN Charter, international law and the IAEA Charter.

"We warn the Zelenskyi regime not to continue provocations at Europe's largest nuclear power plant, as this could lead to a nuclear accident that would have consequences not only for Ukraine." We call on the international community to be cautious on this issue and to condemn the actions of the Kyiv authorities," concludes Zakharova.
