He pointed out that “Russia is now putting the world on the verge of a nuclear catastrophe.” – There is a nuclear power plant in Ukraine, the largest in Europe and it is now in a war zone – he added, referring to the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant. According to him, Russian provocations and shelling are “a huge threat”.

“The Russians must immediately stop nuclear blackmail and withdraw completely from the region of this plant,” said the Ukrainian leader.

He also stressed that “the Russian port blockade in the Sea of ‚Äč‚ÄčAzov has already destabilized the food market”. – But let’s remember one more aspect, the energy aspect – he continued. He pointed out that “Russia is also deliberately trying to impose a reduction in access to electricity” and “is also constantly using its veto right in the United Nations”.
