As reported by Energoatom, yesterday the russian military broke into the premises where the Department of Social Programs of the station is located and, in the presence of other employees, severely beat the head of the department Oleksiy Trubenkov and his deputy Yuriy Androsov.
After that, the men were taken in an unknown direction. The occupiers also detained and placed in a torture chamber the shift chief of the Zaporizhzhia NPP, Konstantyn Beiner, who is a licensed person and is directly responsible for nuclear and radiation safety.
The russians put pressure on the station staff to make them show "loyalty" to the invaders and sign contracts with rosatom.
The work of station employees in such conditions threatens the safety of all of Europe, because a mistake in handling the equipment, made in a state of stress, can lead to a catastrophe.
Terrorism and torture of personnel is a war crime under Article 8 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
By creating a nuclear threat, the terrorist state continues to violate the requirements of Article 56 of the Additional Protocol to the Geneva Conventions of August 12, 1949 regarding the protection of victims of international armed conflicts (Protocol I of June 8, 1977).
I call on the IAEA to urgently take measures to demilitarize the Zaporizhia NPP and return it to the control of Ukraine as soon as possible.
