The Group of Seven industrialized nations condemns Russia’s occupation of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant and calls on Moscow to immediately hand back full control of the plant to Ukraine.

Ukrainian staff operating the plant “must be able to carry out their duties without threats or pressure. It is Russia’s continued control of the plant that endangers the region,” the G7 foreign ministers say in a statement.
