MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Ukraine have recently lauched kamikaze drones attacks on the territory of the nuclear power station immediately following an inspection conducted by experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency.
The issues of recent attacks by Ukraine on the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant (ZNPP) will be raised at the UN Security Council, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.
"Russia raised the issue of attacks by the Kiev regime against the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant both at the IAEA and in the UN Security Council. Russia called on the leadership of the IAEA to give direct assessments of criminal actions, without any tricks, evasions, or insinuations ... The issue of Ukrainian attacks on the plant will also be raised during a UN Security Council briefing," Zakharova told reporters.

Reckless to Claim That ZNPP Attacks Unrelated to Kiev, Russian Foreign Ministry Says
Analysts had explained to Sputnik that the Zaporozhye Plant is currently not generating electricity, therefore these strikes will not affect Russia's energy supply system in the new regions.
However, any disruption to one of the reactors could lead to the uncontrolled release of radioactive substances into the atmosphere. Russian officials have castigated Ukraine's actions branding them "nuclear terrorism" and are urging the international community not to remain silent on this issue.
