Thomas-Greenfield: Russians use Zaporizhzhia as a 'military base'

United States Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Linda Thomas-Greenfield said on Friday that Russian forces should abandon Zaporizhzhia as they are using the region's nuclear power plant as a "military base."

"We want the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to get in there to see exactly what is happening on the ground. If there’s a conflict going on around the plant, it needs to stop," Thomas-Greenfield told BBC.

Earlier today, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova slammed the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) over their stance on the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, stating that it is purposefully avoiding "facts about Ukrainian shelling" near the plant.
