All the leading Western countries know this, they are promoting these dangerous provocations of the Zelensky regime … They prefer to remain silent about this, defending their next puppet project in every possible way,” – Zakharova added it.
On Tuesday, IAEA representatives published a report on the delegation’s work at the ZNPP.
