Russia accuses Ukraine of 'nuclear terrorism'

The Russian Defense Ministry accused Ukraine on Monday of "nuclear terrorism," claiming it attacked the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station.

"On August 7, the Zelensky regime committed a new act of nuclear terrorism at the energy infrastructure facilities of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant to create a humanitarian catastrophe in the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions," the ministry's spokesperson Igor Konashenkov stated.

Russia and Ukraine have blamed each other for attacks on the power plant over the past few days and Energoatom, the Ukrainian state nuclear power plant operator, called for the site to be named a military-free zone.
