The U.S. is closely monitoring the situation at the Zaporizhzhya NPP in Energodar, which has been seized by Russian troops. White House spokeswoman Karin Jean-Pierre said this at a briefing, commenting on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s statement that Russian troops have placed explosives at the ZNPP, Yevropeyska Pravda reported.
“We continue to closely monitor conditions at the nuclear power plant… As we have said before… Russia’s occupation of the nuclear power plant is dangerous. And when it comes to the nuclear power plant, there should be no hostilities there”, she noted.
The White House press secretary said that US President Joe Biden had not discussed the situation at the Zaporizhzhya NPP with Zelenskyy recently.
