The Council of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation strongly condemns the ongoing shelling by Ukrainian military units of Europe’s largest Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) over the past few weeks.
The critical infrastructure of ZNPP is subjected to missile and artillery strikes, the violation of nuclear and physical safety of which threatens a large-scale catastrophe in the center of the European continent. The consequences of the reckless actions of Kyiv, which gives orders to shell the ZNPP, can become truly terrifying.
On the territory of the Russian Federation, Ukrainian saboteurs undermine power lines leading to the Kursk nuclear power plant.
A series of major accidents at nuclear power plants, obviously, did not teach Kyiv and its NATO patrons anything. Russophobic ideology outweighs the principles of nuclear security.
It is only thanks to the dedication of the Russian servicemen who carry out their duty as part of a special military operation in Ukraine that it has been possible so far to provide the necessary protection for the main facilities of the ZNPP and the nearby city of Energodar.
The inherently terrorist attacks on the ZNPP are violations of international humanitarian law, which entails the responsibility of the states involved and politicians who give criminal orders and carry them out.
Russia constantly raises in the UN Security Council the question of the inadmissibility of strikes against the ZNPP by Ukraine. Gives irrefutable evidence of the crimes of the Kyiv regime. Calls on countries that influence Kyiv to force the Ukrainian side to immediately stop shelling.
Western countries are becoming accomplices and accomplices in crimes, supplying Ukraine with ever heavier types of weapons. By condoning the barbaric attacks on the ZNPP, the sponsors of Kyiv endanger the peoples of their countries, which is irresponsible and unacceptable.
The Council of the State Duma, which includes, among other things, the heads of factions of all political parties represented in the State Duma, calls on the UN and the IAEA, as well as national parliaments, inter-parliamentary organizations and bodies:
– to give a fundamental assessment of the criminal actions of Kyiv;
– to demand from the authorities of Ukraine an immediate cessation of shelling of the ZNPP and other objects, the destruction of which carries the danger of radioactive, chemical and biological contamination and a man-made disaster.
The Council of the State Duma demands to stop the supply of weapons to Ukraine, with which the anti-people Kyiv regime kills and maims people, creates the risk of a nuclear catastrophe.
We appeal to the citizens of Ukraine with a request to realize the terrible consequences of the criminal and provocative policy of the Kyiv regime.
The Council of the State Duma reaffirms the readiness of the Russian side to do everything necessary to organize an international IAEA mission to the Zaporizhia NPP so that the agency’s specialists can testify on the spot that there are threats posed as a result of constant Ukrainian attacks on the nuclear power plant, which are fraught with tragic consequences for all mankind.”
