March 30 (UPI) — International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Mariano Grossi said Thursday he had altered his plans to protect the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Grossi said he had been working with Russia and Ukraine on a proposal to protect the power plant, the largest in Europe, but said the plan “had evolved” from his initial proposal to establish a protection zone around the plant to instead ensuring both sides were aware of the proper steps to ensure it is safe.
“It is very, very important that we agree on the fundamental principle that a nuclear power plant should not be attacked under any circumstances and it also shouldn’t be used to attack others,” he said. “A nuclear accident with radiological consequences will spare no one.”
Grossi traveled to the power plant for the second time since September and said the visit “confirmed his assessment of the seriousness of the nuclear safety and security situation” at the Russian-occupied plant.
On Wednesday, he said that the situation was not improving and that it was “obvious that military activity is increasing” in the region.
“Every possible measure and precaution should be taken so that it is not attacked and can be protected,” he said.
During his visit to Ukraine, Grossi met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and tweeted that he had “a rich exchange on the protection of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant.”
He was accompanied by a team of IAEA experts who will remain at the facility for a few weeks, the seventh deployment since the beginning of the IAEA Support and Assistance Mission to Zaporizhzhia started seven months ago.
“We were able to rotate the teams. There is a new team there now which will continue its work. That was for me very, very important,” Grossi said.
“On Wednesday, he said that the situation was not improving and that it was “obvious that military activity is increasing” in the region.”
Another useless piece of shit that can’t call a spade a spade. There is only one military in the region, and that is the scum. Everyone with half a brain knows that once Ukraine start to liberate the area, the scum will try to blackmail Ukraine by threatening to blow the power station up.
“Every possible measure and precaution should be taken so that it is not attacked and can be protected,”
Really? How about letting the occupation authorities understand their responsibilities and liabilities for this war crime and crime against humanity? Surely they can see what the Moskali are doing to the workers and where the shells are coming from. They also know exactly who is keeping the UN from seeing the entire plant and preventing UN teams from assisting. Instead, as you say, just more contributions of CO2…
