UN’s Guterres demands troop pullback from Zaporizhzhya nuclear plant

UN Secretary General António Guterres has again called for the withdrawal of all troops around Ukraine's Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant.

UN Secretary General António Guterres has again called for the withdrawal of all troops around Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant.

Blasts have hit the area of Europe’s biggest nuclear power plant in the Russian occupied zone, with both Moscow and Kiev blaming each other for the shelling.

“The area needs to be demilitarized,” Guterres said on Thursday after meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in Ukraine’s Lviv.

“Agreement is urgently needed to re-establish Zaporizhzhya as purely civilian infrastructure and to ensure the safety of the area,” he added.

“Common sense must prevail to avoid any actions that might endanger the physical integrity, safety or security of the nuclear plant.”

Russia opposes the demilitarization of the site.
