Borrell: fire at Zaporizhzhya nuclear plant can endanger the whole of Europe

Reacting to the Russian attacks at the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, EU High representative Josep Borrell warned on Twitter that this action could have catastrophic consequences. 

The Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, located in southeastern Ukraine,  is the largest in Europe, and according to regional officials, has now been captured by Russian forces.

“Shelling and resulting fire at  Zaporizhzhya power plant can endanger the whole of Europe. They must stop immediately,” Borrell wrote on Twitter.

Borrell also called for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.
