The seizure of the Zaporizhzhya NPP by Russian forces poses a serious threat to the safety of this facility - Jens Stoltenberg

NATO Secretary General has said that the presence of Russian military personnel at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) poses great risks and has called for the plant to be demilitarised and for an IAEA inspection to be allowed there as soon as possible.

Jens Stoltenberg said this at a joint press conference with the President of Serbia.

“The seizure of the Zaporizhzhya NPP by Russian forces poses a serious threat to the safety of this facility, increases the risk of an incident or accident, and endangers the population of neighbouring countries and the international community in general. It is necessary to urgently enable the inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency and ensure the withdrawal of all Russian forces”, - said the Secretary General.
