Ukraine: IAEA triples permanent presence at nuclear plants

THE International Atomic Energy Agency announced that it plans to triple its presence in nuclear power plants her Ukrainiansince o war it escalates even more.

The international organization “will soon be permanently deployed at all power plants in Ukraine, including Chernobyl,” according to a press release issued this evening.

The director general of the IAEA Raphael Grossi will be going there next week to start this new mission.

Although specific missions have been carried out since the beginning of the war, this decision “signals a major expansion”, underlines the IAEA.

Until now, only the sensitive Zaporizhia facility, which is close to the front line and is regularly targeted by shelling, has received personnel from the international organization – up to four people have been stationed there since September.

Henceforth, “almost 11 to 12 experts will always be present” in Ukraine to “monitor the situation, examine the equipment” or even to “provide technical assistance“, says the international organization.

The Ukrainian Prime Minister Dennis Schmihal announced in December, after a meeting with Grossi, that such missions are aimed at the “security” of the country’s five power plants, but the timing and size were not specified.

In addition to Zaporizhia, inspectors will be deployed to Rivnethe Khmelnitskythe Pyvdenukrainsk and Chernobylthe power station where the worst nuclear accident in history occurred in 1986.
