“These propaganda threats are picked up by the Western press.
All this is done contrary to common sense, since the ZNPP is controlled by the Russian armed forces, ”RIA Novosti quotes him as saying during a meeting of the Security Council of the world organization.
Nebenzia added that the Russian side has no reason to "shell the station, the city, or themselves."
Also, the Russian permanent representative said that in the event of a catastrophe at the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, responsibility would fall on the Western sponsors of Kyiv.
Earlier, the head of the military-civilian administration of the Zaporozhye region, Yevgeny Balitsky, said that the ZNPP recorded three arrivals of shells in the area of the storage of radioactive isotopes.
