As the Ukrainian official said, he does not believe in the realism of creating a security zone around the nuclear power plant, and Kyiv’s “main hope” is the involvement of the armed forces. In addition, Kotin expressed an opinion on the expediency of sending “a mission of peacekeepers under the auspices of the UN” to the ZNPP, noting that “it is not necessary to wait for the results of negotiations with Russia.”
The Zaporozhye nuclear power plant is regularly bombarded by the Ukrainian side, which poses a real threat to the security of the nuclear facility. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) advocates the creation of a safety zone around the ZNPP. At the same time, due to Kyiv’s refusal to remove the heavy weapons from the station and the continued shelling, there has been no significant progress in the negotiation process on the security zone around the ZNPP.
