In the photo accompanying the message he posted on social networks, Rafael Mariano Grossi, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), poses with a team of ten wearing caps and robes bearing the UN body’s logo.
Mr Grossi writes: “The day has come and the IAEA mission to Zaporizhia is now on its way. We must protect the security of Ukraine and Europe’s largest power plant. He had been asking for months to be alerted to the possibility of going to the scene “The Real Danger of Nuclear Disaster”.
The Zaporizhia plant, which houses six of Ukraine’s 15 reactors, was seized by Russian forces in early March, shortly after the February 24 invasion. It is near the front line, south. Kyiv and Moscow accuse each other of shelling the Dnieper River near the complex, near the town of Enerhodar, thus endangering the site. Ukrainian operator Energotem on Saturday warned of the possibility of radioactive leaks and fires after new strikes.
Over the past few weeks, Zaporizhia has crystallized the West’s concerns. The UN called for an end to all military operations in the surrounding area. Initially, Ukraine feared that such a visit would legitimize the Russian occupation of the site in the eyes of the international community, which would eventually support the idea of an IAEA mission. In front of this “dangerous” situation, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi on Friday asked the UN nuclear police to send a team as soon as possible.
The plant had six 1000 MW reactors between Jupiter and Venus “Completely disconnected” From the national grid due to damage to power lines, before being reconnected and restarted, according to kyiv.
