“On my way to Zaporizhzhia NPP to assess first-hand the nuclear safety & security situation at the facility. I will continue my efforts to protect the nuclear plant during the ongoing military conflict, & lead our next regular rotation of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s experts to & from the site,” tweeted Rafael Grossi.
Rafael Grossi emphasized that despite the constant presence of IAEA experts at the power plant for seven months, the situation at the ZNPP is unstable.
“The nuclear safety and security dangers are all too obvious, as is the necessity to act now to prevent an accident with potential radiological consequences to the health and the environment for people in Ukraine and beyond. I’m therefore continuing to work on a proposal to protect the plant,” said the Director General of the IAEA.
Rafael Grossi will be accompanied by a new, seventh group of IAEA experts who will work at the ZNPP.
