Mr. Lavrov assured that Ukraine continues to “bomb the largest nuclear power plant in Europe, as well as its adjacent area, which exposes the entire European population to the danger of a nuclear disaster”.

This plant southern Ukraine has been occupied since the beginning of March by the Russian army. It has become the target in recent weeks of strikes for which Moscow and Kyiv accuse each other.
