Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN Vasily Nebenzya said that the security measures proposed by the head of the IAEA Rafael Grossi at the Zaporozhye NPP are already being implemented by the Russian side. According to Mr. Nebenzi, there are no military and military equipment at the station, and there are no attacks from the territory of the station.
“Mr. Grossi’s proposals to ensure the plant’s security are consistent with the measures that we have been implementing for a long time in our national capacity in accordance with the decisions taken at the national level,” Vasily Nebenzya said at a meeting of the UN Security Council.
At the same meeting, Rafael Grossi presented the safety principles of the Zaporizhzhya NPP, among them: not to strike at the reactors and spent fuel storage, critical infrastructure or personnel; do not use the station to accommodate the military; keep the station connected to the power supply; fully protect the station from attacks and sabotage; do not violate the above principles.
“There have never been any attacks from the ZNPP territory. The station has never housed heavy weapons and ammunition. There are no military personnel at the Zaporizhzhya NPP that could be used to attack from the territory of the plant,” Vasily Nebenzya replied to these proposals of Mr. Grossi. He also promised that Russia would take “every possible measure to strengthen the nuclear and physical security of the station” in accordance with Russian laws and obligations.
On May 30, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Ukraine was trying to disrupt the work of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant with the help of “dirty devices related to the nuclear industry.”
