Ukraine war: Russia told to stop shelling nuclear plant

Forty-two countries – including Britain, the United States and all of the European Union, have demanded that Russia withdraw its troops from the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine, and out of the country altogether – describing Russia’s war of aggression as a gross violation of international law, as well as endangering nuclear safety.

A foreman at the plant was killed and two others were injured in fresh Russian shell attacks today, according to the nuclear power company.
