Kiev's actions at Zaporozhye increase nuclear risks - Russia

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated on Tuesday, during a press briefing, that Kiev's actions in the Zaporozhye region and more specifically around the nuclear power plant are increasing the risks of a nuclear disaster.

"Russia will continue to do everything [in its power] to ensure security at the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant and protect it from Ukrainian attacks," Zakharova underlined, adding that Moscow will continue to supply International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) with "objective information."

Zakharova stressed that "never before in history have operating nuclear power plants been subjected to such regular and frenzied attacks," calling the issue "vital" and saying such a matter should now be in the foreground instead of other problems that are currently weighing on Russia's relations with the West.
