UN proposes demilitarized zone around nuclear plant

The UN Secretary General Ant nio Guterres has proposed the creation of a demilitarized zone around the nuclear power plant due to the fears of a nuclear disaster. It was made before the extraordinary meeting of the Security Council of the world organization called for the case.

In front of the council, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA Rafael Grossi said that the situation at the plant was critical and asked for permission from Kyiv and Moscow to inspect the 6 reactors.

Vasily Nebenzya, the Russian representative in the council, opposed the demilitarization of the plant. Russian troops are protecting the occupied plant from terrorist attacks and provocation, according to Interfax.

Ukraine's president Volodymyr Zelensky accused Russia of using the nuclear plant for nuclear blackmail of the entire world. Ukraine claims that Russia has turned the headquarters into a military base from where it attacks Ukrainian positions. The Russian army uses the reactors as a nuclear shield because it knows that Ukrainian forces are unlikely to retaliate against guided missile fire. Moscow denies the claim.

The 26 participating countries promised new aid to the tune of 1.5 billion euro, according to Danish Defense Minister Moren B dskov, at the 5th meeting of the countries of the Ramstein format held in Copenhagen in order to support Ukraine at the 5th meeting of the countries of the Ramstein format. New commitments have been made to train the Ukrainian military to work with Western military equipment.
