The United Nations (UN) International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) mission arrived at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine. The information was confirmed by Ukraine’s nuclear operator Energoatom in a statement on Telegram.
The IAEA also confirmed the arrival in a post on Twitter.
“The IAEA Support and Assistance Mission to Zaporizhzhia (ISAMZ), led by Director General Rafael Grossi, has just arrived at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant to carry out indispensable nuclear safety and security and safeguards activities,” the agency said.
Earlier, a Ukrainian presidential adviser accused Russian forces of trying to disrupt the nuclear inspectors’ visit to the plant by bombing the nearby town of Enerhodar.
“The Russians bombed Enerhodar and the ZNPP territory [Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant]” said Andriy Yermak, head of the Office of the President of Ukraine. “They want to disrupt the IAEA mission visit [Agência Internacional de Energia Atômica]. These are the actions of a terrorist state, which fears the world will know the truth.”
