Yesterday, the International Atomic Energy Agency issued a new resolution against Russia for its suppression of nuclear facilities in Ukraine. The International Atomic Energy Agency’s board of governors said it called on Russia to “immediately” withdraw its soldiers and “other personnel” from the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant.
In addition, Russia must end “all actions against and against” the power plant and all other nuclear facilities in Ukraine. The International Atomic Energy Agency has also urged Moscow to stop its “unsubstantiated allegations” that the Zaporizhia plant belongs to Russia. The organization is “gravely concerned” that Russia has not followed through on previous requests.
Russia and China voted against the resolution
Agence France-Presse learned from diplomats that 24 of the 35 council members agreed with the resolution put forth by Canada and Finland. Russia and China voted against, and other members abstained.
For months, Moscow and Kiev accused each other of being responsible for the attacks around the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant. The largest nuclear power plant in Europe is not far from the front in the Zaporizhia region, which Russia has declared annexation. In October, Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a decree to place the nuclear power plant under Russian administration.
