The Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal noted on January 25, 2023, on Twitter that permanent monitoring missions of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have begun work at all Ukrainian nuclear power plants.
“Permanent monitoring missions of the IAEA organization started their work in all nuclear power plants at the request of the Ukrainian government. Grateful to Rafael Grossi [Director General of the IAEA – ed.]. We must do everything to ensure safety & avoid nuclear threats. We’re working to free Zaporizhzhia NPP from Russian occupiers,” tweeted the Prime Minister of Ukraine.
The expanding presence of the IAEA in Ukraine will prevent nuclear accidents at nuclear power plants. IAEA specialists have been working on a permanent basis at the Zaporizhzhia NPP, which was captured by Russian troops, since September 2022. On January 24, 2023, a permanent monitoring mission of the IAEA began work at the Khmelnytskyi NPP.
