Russia must give Kiev full control over nuclear plant - Borrell

European Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell (pictured) underscored on Friday that Russia must "immediately" hand back full control over the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, to the "rightful, sovereign owner, Ukraine."

"Zaporizhzhia facility must not be used as part of any military operation," wrote Borrell on his Twitter page, urging Russian forces to withdraw from the area. In addition, he called on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to inspect the power plant in response to Kiev's requests for an international mission led by the IAEA to do so.

In an earlier statement, Moscow criticized the UN Security Council's (UNSC) handling of the situation around the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (NPP).
