US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken called Russian nuclear blackmail “the pinnacle of irresponsibility.”
United States Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, after the UN talks on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons in New York, said that the Russian occupiers turned the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant into a “nuclear shield”: Russia uses the nuclear power plant as a military base and fires on Ukrainian forces around it . This was reported by Reuters.
The US Secretary of State called nuclear blackmail by the Russian Federation “the pinnacle of irresponsibility.”
“Of course, the Ukrainians cannot return fire, otherwise there will be a terrible accident at the nuclear power plant,” – noted Anthony Blinken.
And if before the Russian Federation was hiding behind a “human shield” of civilians from the temporarily occupied territories, now the aggressor country has gone further and hides behind a “nuclear shield”, the US Secretary of State believes.
Earlier it was reported that Russian troops were terrorizing the workers of the nuclear power plant, which caused about a thousand nuclear workers to leave the city.
Energoatom also reported that the occupiers had kidnapped up to 100 ZNPP employees.
