Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights urges UN and IAEA to send security mission to Zaporizhzhia NPP

The Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights, Dmytro Lubinets, called on the Secretary General of the UN and the IAEA to send a security mission to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant captured by the russians.

It is stated on the ombudsman's Telegram.

"Once again, I call on the UN Secretary-General, the IAEA, and the entire world community to take possible measures to send a security mission to the Zaporizhzhia NPP, to demilitarize the territory of the NPP completely, and to provide security guarantees to the employees of the nuclear plant and the residents of the city of Enerhodar for the maintenance of the plant. Today, relevant letters have been prepared and sent," Lubinets noted.

According to him, only decisive joint actions of the world community will be able to save millions of human lives.

The ombudsman emphasized that the russian federation continues acts of nuclear terrorism against ZNPP facilities and its personnel.

Lubinets reminded that, according to the information of the Chief Directorate of Intelligence, the territory of the ZNPP is currently mined, and individual employees of the plant are subjected to torture and forced disappearance, and they receive threats. It threatens employees' lives and prevents the facility's normal operation.

The ombudsman stated that the presence of the russian military at the nuclear power plant poses a threat not only to tens of millions of Ukrainians but also to the whole world.

"The devastating consequences of nuclear terrorism and the spread of radioactivity do not "respect" state borders, and radioactive emissions spread uncontrollably; the consequences of radioactive pollution remain for decades," Lubinets emphasized.
