Vasili Nebenzia, Representative of Russia to the UN, has criticized the Western position on the situation in the Zaporozhye plant, which UAF has bombed. He also ironized the accusations that blame the attacks on Moscow.
A Russian nuclear defense troops member told RT that radiation at the station and its surroundings was within norms. "The shelling mostly affected auxiliary equipment and hydrogen and oxygen facilities," he said, noting that work was underway to repair the damage and ensure the plant's operation.
A mission from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is expected to visit the facility soon, which is at risk of radiation spill due to constant shelling by Kiev forces.
The Russian Defense Ministry has repeatedly denounced Kiev's firing at Europe's largest NPP in the Ukrainian city of Energodar. According to the ministry, Ukrainian troops have been firing from the site opposite the large water reservoir at Kakhovka.
Ukraine, for its part, has denied shelling the Zaporozhye plant and said that Russia's accusations are aimed at discrediting Kiev. The plant has been under Russian control since early March and has continued operations with local personnel.
