“Any attack on a nuclear plant is a suicidal thing”
United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that the risk of nuclear confrontation had returned after decades, calling on nuclear states to commit to no first use of the weapons. He called for international inspectors to be given access to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant — Europe’s largest atomic complex — which is occupied by Russia.
“Any attack on a nuclear plant is a suicidal thing,” Guterres told a news conference in Japan, Reuters reports. Ukraine blamed Russia for renewed shelling in the area of the plant on August 6, 2022, that had damaged three radiation sensors and injured a worker. It was the second reported hit on the plant in as many days, following damage to a power line.
