The head of the IAEA does not see an “immediate threat” to the nuclear safety of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant


Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Rafael Grossi believes that there is no “immediate threat” to nuclear safety at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant. However, in his opinion, the situation may change.

“At the moment there is no immediate threat to nuclear security as a result of shelling or other military actions. Be that as it may, this can change at any time,” Mr. Grossi said at a meeting of the UN Security Council on the issue of plant security. The broadcast was on site UN.

ZNPP, located in the Ukrainian Zaporozhye region, has been under the control of the Russian military since March. In recent days, the parties have repeatedly accused each other of escalating the situation near the station. Negotiations are underway on a trip to the territory of the Zaporizhzhya NPP by representatives of the IAEA. Russia claimed that the visit was agreed upon in early June, but it was thwarted by the UN secretariat. At the same time, UN Secretary General António Guterres himself calls for the travel of IAEA inspectors, as well as the creation of a security perimeter around the station.
