(MENAFN) Dmitry Medvedev, a former president of Russia, has made a subliminal warning to Ukraine's Western partners, who have accused Russia of raising the possibility of a nuclear accident by stationing troops near the Ukrainian Zaporizhzhia nuclear facility.
Ukraine has claimed that Russia fired at Ukrainian towns from the area knowing that Ukrainian forces could not take the risk of retaliating. While accusing Ukraine, it claims that Russia has bombarded the area itself. According to Russia, the factory was targeted by Ukraine.
“They [Kyiv and its allies] say it’s Russia. That’s obviously 100 percent nonsense, even for the stupid Russophobic public,” Medvedev, now the deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council, stated through Telegram channel on Friday.
“They say it happens purely by chance, like ‘We didn’t mean to’,” he highlighted. “What can I say? Let’s not forget that the European Union also has nuclear power plants. And accidents can happen there, too.”
Late on Thursday, the UN's nuclear head issued a dire warning about "extremely disturbing" military action around the nuclear facility.
