Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said the world is on the verge of a nuclear disaster as tensions mount over the Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.
“The world is on a verge of nuclear disaster due to occupation of world’s third largest nuclear power plant in Energodar, Zaporizhzhia region,” Zelenskyy wrote on Twitter.
Russian forces took control of Zaporizhzhia, Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, shortly after a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
“How long will it take the global community to respond to Russia’s irresponsible actions and nuclear blackmailing,” Zelenskyy added on Twitter.
