Tbilisi: Georgia, along with other 42 countries, has urged Russia to withdraw its military as well as the other unauthorized personnel from Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Plant in Ukraine. 

The EU insisted upon the safety reasons for withdrawal of the troops as an act of war near the nuclear plant could endanger the safety of citizens on a very large scale. Moreover, the safe operations of the plant would be disrupted.

Various member nations of the European Union (EU) including Norway, the UK, the US, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Georgia, Moldova, North Macedonia, and Turkey, appealed that Russia’s army should abandon that area on the earliest. Meanwhile, the EU has termed the attack to be ‘unprovoked and unjustified.

Any kind of military action in the region of Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) is a direct violation of International Law and the UN Charter. Not only this, any kind of military act poses a major threat to nuclear safety principles.

The ZNPP hasn’t been able to carry on the necessary safety operations while the troops have been marching in the region. The Ukrainian authorities have agreed to fulfil their nuclear and radiation safety obligations while following the international conventions and IAEA safety standards.

 However, with the presence of Russian forces near the plant, the IAEA has been obstructed from fulfilling its safeguards mandate. Therefore, prompting action from Georgia along with other EU member countries.

  “We urge the Russian Federation to immediately withdraw its military forces and all other unauthorized personnel from the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant and its immediate surroundings and all of Ukraine so that the operator and the Ukrainian authorities can resume their sovereign responsibilities within Ukraine’s internationally recognized borders and the legitimate operating staff can conduct their duties without outside interference, threat, or unacceptably harsh working conditions,” the official statement from the countries expressing security concerns about ZNPP.
