US backs demilitarization of Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant

The United States Department of State supported the initiative to demilitarize the area surrounding the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station in southeastern Ukraine, where clashes are currently taking place between Ukrainian and Russian forces.

"Fighting near a nuclear plant is dangerous and irresponsible, and we continue to call on Russia to cease all military operations at or near Ukrainian nuclear facilities and return full control to Ukraine and support Ukrainian calls for a demilitarized zone around the nuclear power plant," the State Department noted on Thursday.

Earlier today, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged both sides to halt all actions that could endanger the security of the largest nuclear power plan on the continent.
