In the area of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant (NPP), it is necessary to declare a regime of silence, RIA Novosti said. Volodymyr Rogov, member of the main council of the administration of the Zaporozhye region.
“The UN leadership and the head of the EU diplomacy should not declare about demilitarization, but about the introduction of a regime of silence, and also provide not just sanctions for its violation, but the most severe sanctions for shelling of nuclear power plants»,— he thinks.
According to Rogov, this can “sober up” servicemen of Ukraine who “blackmail” the whole world “the threat of a nuclear catastrophe.”
Zaporozhye NPP— the largest nuclear power plant in Europe, located in the city of Energodar, Zaporozhye region of Ukraine. The southern and central parts of this region, in particular Energodar and the territory of the nuclear power plant itself, are controlled by Russian forces. Ukrainian operators work at the station.
UN Secretary General António Guterres, in his statement on the situation with the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, called for “agreeing at the technical level on a safe demilitarization perimeter to ensure the security of the area.” He believes that it is not worth bringing peacekeepers into the territory of the nuclear power plant, since the parties to the conflict themselves are able to provide a safe perimeter around it.
The United States also supported the creation of a demilitarized zone around the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant. The State Department also urged Moscow to transfer the territory of the plant to the control of Kyiv.
After the start of the conflict, the parties repeatedly accused each other of strikes on the territory of the nuclear power plant and damage to its infrastructure.
