“Today four of the six representatives of the IAEA inspection team completed their work at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant and left it,” Energoatom said in a Telegram statement.

“It is expected that two specialists will continue to work at the (nuclear plant) on a permanent basis”he added as reported by the Athens News Agency.

Russian-appointed local official Vladimir Rogov confirmed in a radio interview today that two observers will remain at the station.

“The members of the IAEA mission have now left Zaporizhia, while for now two people have remained as observers,” he explained.
