Ukraine: “Russia deploys missiles at the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant” | Abroad

The largest nuclear facility is located on the Dnieper River in southeastern Ukraine and was captured shortly after the start of the Russian invasion. “The occupiers are moving their equipment there, including missile systems,” said Pedro Cotten, president of Energoatom. The situation on the ground is said to be “extremely tense”. It is said that about five hundred Russian soldiers control the site. The plant will continue to be operated by Ukrainian employees.

The IAEA is playing political and balancing games between Russia and Ukraine.

Cotten also criticized the International Atomic Energy Agency. Energoatom said the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency wants to send experts to Zaporizhia “for necessary maintenance” and is concerned about the condition of staff, but such a visit would only legitimize Russia’s occupation of the plant. “The IAEA is playing political games and balancing Russia and Ukraine,” Cotten said.

The International Atomic Energy Agency has not been able to visit the nuclear power plant since the start of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February. The Zaporizhzhya region is largely in the hands of Russia.
