Russian occupation of nuclear plant is ‘radiation blackmail,’ Zelensky says

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the Russian occupation of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant is “the worst thing that could happen in the history” of Europe’s nuclear energy sector. Russia is using the plant for “radiation blackmail,” he said in his nightly address Monday. The remarks came after he met with Rafael Mariano Grossi, the chief of the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency, in the Zaporizhzhia region.

The Kremlin’s troops have controlled the plant since last year, after seizing it during the first weeks of the invasion. But crossfire during the fighting has threatened to shut down the reactors’ coolers, heightening the risk of a nuclear meltdown. The plant has been forced to rely on its emergency diesel generators at least six times during the war, according to the IAEA. Russia claimed to annex the Zaporizhzhia region, in violation of international law, late last year, even though parts of the region including its capital remain under Ukrainian control.
