“Zaporizhzhia facility must not be used as part of any military operation. I support call for demilitarisation of area starting with full withdrawal of Russian forces, and urge IAEA to visit it,” Borrell wrote on Twitter.

He emphasized that Russia should immediately return full control over the object to the legitimate sovereign owner – Ukraine.

In addition, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres issued on August 11 a dire warning over ZNPP, calling for withdrawing any military personnel and equipment from the plant and refraining from any further deployment of forces or equipment to the site.

Meanwhile, Russia rejected UN calls to create a demilitarized zone around the biggest nuclear power plant in Europe.
