The Ministry of Defense called the shelling of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant “nuclear terrorism”

The agency referred to the UN International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism and accused the organization of obstructing the work of the IAEA. The Ministry of Defense warned that the strike would cause a catastrophe larger than Chernobyl and Fukushima

The Russian Ministry of Defense, in accordance with the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism of the UN General Assembly, regards the shelling of the territory of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant on August 5 as an act of nuclear terrorism. The department stated this in Telegram.

“In accordance with the International Convention, adopted by the resolution of the UN General Assembly of April 13, 2005, we regard these criminal actions of the Ukrainian authorities as nuclear terrorism”,— according to the message of the Ministry of Defense.

At the request of Roskomnadzor, RBC provides data on the details of the military operation in Ukraine based on information from Russian official sources.

The agency warned that the accident at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant would cause a global man-made disaster, “which, in terms of the scale of radioactive contamination, will significantly exceed the consequences of the accidents at the nuclear power plants in Chernobyl and Fukushima.” Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev, head of the National Defense Control Center of Russia, accused the UN of obstructing the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) from monitoring the state of the station.

The territory of the nuclear power plant was shelled on the evening of August 5 . Vladimir Rogov, a member of the main council of the military-civilian administration of the Zaporozhye region, was the first to report this. He said that after the impact, a fire broke out on the territory of the station, the shells damaged two power lines.

Later, Rogov's words were confirmed by the Ministry of Defense. The agency clarified that twenty 152-mm shells were fired from Ukraine at the station and the city of Energodar, where it is located. As a result, according to the ministry, electricity and water supply was partially lost in the city, and part of the equipment of power unit No. 3 was de-energized at the nuclear power plant. The generated capacity of Unit 4 also fell. In addition, a flare fire occurred at the hydrogen station at the nuclear power plant.
