Ukraine gets support for nuclear terrorism - Russia

Russian Foreign Ministry claimed on Wednesday that Ukraine engages in "nuclear terrorism" as it continues to accuse Kiev of shelling the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. Deputy Director of the Department for Non-Proliferation and Arms Control Igor Vishnevetsky said Ukraine once again attacked the plant today, stating it is violating the main principles of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Vishnevetsky also said it is "of great concern that [Ukraine] receives support in this," referring to the country's Western allies. "This means encouraging the aggressor... to continue these irresponsible actions. This could end in disaster." Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said his country "is ready to ensure proper control of the IAEA, and the relevant mission can be sent to the Zaporizhzhia plant in a legal way, very fast and as efficiently as possible."
