MOSCOW, November 30. /TASS/. Russia?s Federation Council (the upper house of parliament) plans to demand the Ukrainian authorities put an end to attacks on the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant, according to a draft address to the world?s parliaments and international parliamentary organizations that the senators will consider on Wednesday.
"The Federation Council demands the Ukrainian military and political leadership immediately put an end to any kind of attacks on the Zaporozhye NPP and related infrastructure," the document reads.
The Federation Council also calls on the world?s parliaments and international parliamentary organizations to "condemn the Kiev authorities' policy and demand they stop their belligerent actions that threaten the security of Europe?s largest nuclear power plant," the draft address specified.
The Kiev regime?s assault on the Zaporozhye NPP can be seen as nothing but nuclear terrorism, the Federation Council pointed out. "The continued strikes pose a danger of major radioactive contamination, which would affect not only Russia and Ukraine but also their neighboring European countries," the document cautioned.
The Russian Defense Ministry reported earlier that the Ukrainian military had resumed shelling attacks on the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant after a two-month pause. According to the ministry, Ukrainian forces fired 25 munitions at the facility on November 19-20, with one of them hitting the roof of Special Building No. 2, where nuclear fuel is stored. The Zaporozhye station is Europe?s largest operating nuclear power plant. Russia took control of the facility on February 28. -0-bea/pa
