Experts of the International Atomic Energy Agency arrived at all NPPs of Ukraine in order to provide support and assistance to the personnel. The IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi stated this in a video message on November 24, 2022.
“Recently, Ukraine called on the IAEA to provide, as it was with the Zaporizhzhia NPP, Rivne, Khmelnytskyi, South Ukraine, and Chornobyl nuclear power plants of Ukraine with support and assistance on the ground. This support has begun. We must do everything to prevent a nuclear incident at all Ukrainian NPPs,” reported Rafael Grossi.
He reminded that IAEA experts have been at the ZNPP since the beginning of September, providing support and assistance to the station’s staff. According to the Director General, progress is already visible in the creation of a physical and nuclear safety zone around this NPP.
“But at a time when the world is focused on the dangerous situation at the Zaporizhzhia NPP, the largest nuclear power plant in Europe, we should not forget about the country’s other nuclear facilities,” Rafael Grossi emphasized.
All Ukrainian nuclear power plants lost their external power supply for the first time as a result of Russian missile strikes on November 23, 2022.
