Energy Minister of Ukraine German Galushchenko called on international partners to impose sanctions on the aggressor’s nuclear industry and deprive russia of the benefits of membership of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
“russia is targeting critical civilian infrastructure, deliberately destroying the communication lines of Europe’s largest nuclear power plant. With its actions, the aggressor continues to blackmail the entire world with a nuclear disaster. What else should russia do so that the world reacts and stops cooperation with Rosatom? We call on our partners to take decisive steps: to impose sanctions on the aggressor’s nuclear industry and to deprive russia of the benefits of IAEA membership,” Galushchenko said.
The energy minister also noted that the strikes were aimed at the facilities of heat generation and transmission systems, and a communication line that powers the Zaporizhzhia NPP was damaged by the shelling.
