G7: Moscow endangers the region by seizing the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant

The Group of Seven (G7) most advanced industrialized countries today accused Moscow of “endangering” the Ukrainian region around the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, which has been seized by Russian troops, and demanded that control of the nuclear plant be returned in Ukraine.

“We demand that Russia immediately return to its rightful sovereign owner, Ukraine, full control of the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant,” the G7 wrote in a statement released by Germany, which chairs the group. “Russia’s continued control of the station is what endangers the region,” he asserts.

“Ukrainian personnel who ensure the operation of the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant must continue to perform their duties without being threatened or pressured,” the G7 also assesses.

The Group of Seven also expresses its “deep concern over the serious threat” posed by the Russian military to “the security” of Ukrainian nuclear facilities.

The occupation of these facilities by Moscow’s troops “significantly increases the risk of an accident or a nuclear incident” and “endangers the population of Ukraine, neighboring states and the international community,” according to the same source.
