UN chief calls for access to Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for international inspectors to be allowed access to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in Ukraine. He said at a news conference in Japan that any attack to a nuclear plant is a suicide. He said on Saturday that he attended the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony to commemorate the 77th anniversary of the world's first atomic bombing.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his nightly video address that there is no such nation in the world that can feel safe when a terrorist state fires a nuclear plant. Volodymyr Zelenski said that if something irreparable happens, no one will stop the wind that will spread radioactive contamination, and he had talked to the president of the European Council Charles Michel about the situation on the battlefield and the threat that Russia created by striking at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.

Ukrainian aviation once again hit the strategically important Antonivskyi bridge over the Dnipro River, which the Russians are trying to repair.

Russian positions and military depots have also suffered HIMARS hits on the right bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson region. The transport and logistics centre in Melitopol has been hit with seven settlements.
