Russia’s permanent representative in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, said that tomorrow he would meet with the director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, and discuss with him his idea of creating a nuclear safety zone around the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.
“Tomorrow I will meet with the CEO. Today he is in Rome, so we could not meet. We will meet with him tomorrow and I will ask him to explain in detail what he means,” Ulyanov said.
He added: “The staff of the International Atomic Energy Agency who visited the plant are well aware that the Ukrainians are carrying out bombings, but it seems that the agency cannot state this publicly.”
In its report on the results of its mission at the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant, the International Atomic Energy Agency announced that a number of accidents at the plant violated nuclear safety principles and warned of continued bombardment of the plant. , as this can damage critical equipment and cause unlimited radiation leaks.
The agency recommended an immediate halt to the bombardment of the station and surrounding areas, emphasizing its readiness to begin immediate consultations to establish a “safety zone” around it to prevent a “nuclear accident” as a result of hostilities. However, the experts’ report does not indicate the organization or party that carried out the explosion.
