How to steal a nuclear station? Russian atomic blackmail in Enerhodar

Nuclear blackmail remains one of the strongest instruments of intimidation that Russia uses in its war against Ukraine. Zaporizhzhya NPP, which is the largest in Europe, is still under the control of Russian occupiers who use this fact to blackmail the world with a new nuclear catastrophe.

Russian troops regularly shell the NPP and nearby facilities, organize provocations, continue their nuclear terrorism, and use the plant as a military base to shell Ukrainian civilians.

While Zaporizhzhia NPP needs an inspection and repairs, and the situation there is beyond International Atomic Energy Agency control, Russian propaganda keeps shifting the responsibility for nuclear terrorism to Ukrainian Armed Forces, mining the NPP territory and violating all principles of nuclear safety.
