Rosatom, a Russian corporation, and 199 companies that are part of its structure have been sanctioned by the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine as decided by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
According to the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU), restrictive measures will apply for the next 50 years and will extend to all financial and economic operations of these institutions.
According to SSU’s materials, Rosatom and its related companies are involved in the “alienation” of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant in favour of the aggressor country.
The SSU has evidence showing that Rosatom’s employees and the corporation’s affiliated companies:
▪️ assumed control over technological and management processes at the ZNPP;
▪️ contribute to the connection of the nuclear power plant to the Russian energy system;
▪️ try to legalize the operation of the ZNPP in the Russian federation by establishing fake Russian companies: Operating Organization of Zaporozhye NPP JSC and Zaporozhye NPP FSUE, which are part of the structure of Rosatom SE.
The special service continues to systematically document and expose the crimes of the Russian occupiers and take measures to bring them to justice.
As reported by Ukrainian Energy the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced on 5 February that he had put into effect the NSDC's decision regarding sanctions against Russia’s nuclear industry.
Last week, the European Parliament called on EU Member States to impose sanctions on Rosatom and its related companies.
As a reminder, the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant remains occupied by Russian troops since 4 March 2022. Rosatom employees are constantly present in the territory of the ZNPP. The occupiers established a fake Zaporozhye NPP JSC, which is managed by Rosatom.
