Russia says “Nyet” to UN calls for DMZ around Ukrainian nuclear plant – Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists

The former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev on Friday said Ukraine was shelling the plant itself. “They say it’s Russia,” he wrote on Telegram. “That’s obviously 100 percent nonsense, even for the stupid Russophobic public.” Medvedev, the deputy chair of Russia’s security council, added:

“They say it happens purely by chance, like ‘we didn’t mean to.’

What can I say? Let’s not forget that the European Union also has nuclear power plants. And accidents can happen there, too.”
