Russia is the only country in the world that allows its military to shell nuclear power plants. Such a statement made the President of Ukraine.
“Today we have another sanctions step by our country against the terrorist state. The NSDC decision on sanctions against Russia’s nuclear industry has been put into effect. This is not the last decision regarding this industry of theirs. The point of our steps is also to bolster the efforts of our diplomats to extend global sanctions to this part of the Russian aggression machine.
Russia is the only country in the world that allows its military to shell nuclear power plants and use NPPs as a cover for shelling. Russian missiles have repeatedly followed trajectories over Ukraine’s nuclear facilities. The terrorist state uses the nuclear industry as one of the elements of foreign expansion. To put pressure on other states. To create respective threats to the sovereignty of other states.
All of these are sufficient reasons for Russia’s nuclear industry to be subject to global sanctions. And we are working on this with our partners”, - said Volodymyr Zelensky.
