Guterres calls for an agreement on a secure perimeter around the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant

UN Secretary General António Guterres announced the need to agree on a technical level of a secure perimeter around the Zaporizhzhya NPP in order to ensure security in the region.

According to a UN statement released on Thursday, the UN Secretary General called on the Russian army and Ukraine to “immediately cease all hostilities in the immediate vicinity of the aforementioned plant,” and to withdraw military personnel and equipment from the nuclear power plant.

“This facility cannot be used in the context of any military operation,” Guterres added. “Instead, an urgent agreement is needed at a technical level to provide a secure demilitarized perimeter to secure the area.”

It is noteworthy that the aforementioned station is located on the left bank of the Dnieper near the city of Energograd. It is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe in terms of the number of units and the energy generated. This station has been guarded by the Russian army since March last year.
