The United States Embassy in Kyiv on Friday accused Russia of committing a \u0022war crime\u0022 following its attack on a Ukrainian nuclear power plant overnight.\r\n\r\n\u0022It is a war crime to attack a nuclear power plant. [Russian President Vladimir] Putin\u0026#039;s shelling of Europe\u0026#039;s largest nuclear plant takes his reign of terror one step further,\u0022 the embassy tweeted, using the hashtag #TheHague.\r\n\r\nThe embassy\u0026#039;s post came as Ukrainian officials said that Russian forces had taken control of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in southeastern Ukraine. That seizure took place after a fire broke out at the plant as a result of Russian shelling that sparked global fears of nuclear catastrophe.\r\n\r\nThe fire has since been extinguished, and officials say there is no sign of radioactive leakage at this time.\r\n\r\nUkrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said the attack amounted to \u0022nuclear terror.\u0022\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\u0022No country besides Russia has ever fired upon an atomic power plant\u0026#039;s reactors. The first time, the first time in history,\u0022 Zelenskyy said in a Facebook post, CNN reported.\r\n\r\nThe situation elicited concern from anti-nuclear campaigners, including Greenpeace E.U. \u0022We call for an immediate ceasefire at Zaporizhzhia, and for the withdrawal of Russian forces so that emergency crews and staff at the plant can work under normal conditions, reducing the risk of human error,\u0022 the group tweeted.\r\n\r\nAlso on Friday the United Nations Human Rights Council voted overwhelmingly in favor of a resolution condemning Russia\u0026#039;s invasion and establishing an independent international commission of inquiry to probe alleged human rights violations as a result of Russia\u0026#039;s invasion. The resolution called for an end of hostilities and the immediate withdrawal of Russian military forces from Ukrainian territory.\r\n\r\nThe vote was 32 in favor and 13 abstentions. Only two members—Russia and Eritrea—voted against the resolution.
