The head of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi, suggested that Ukraine and Russia conclude an agreement on a ban on attacking the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.
As writes la RepubblicaGrossi, who visited ZNPP last week, said:
“The idea is to tell the Russians and Ukrainians: do you agree in principle that the station cannot be attacked? So let’s make a simple agreement to protect, in fact, ‘sanctuarize’ (inviolability) the station.”
Earlier, Grossi said that he was convinced of the strikes on the station, called the situation unacceptable and noted that all station systems must be fully functional.
Our publication also reported that the IAEA published a report based on the results of the mission to ZNPP. It urges the establishment of a safe zone around the nuclear power plant as soon as possible and states “the urgent need for interim measures to prevent a nuclear accident caused by physical damage caused by military means” at ZNPP. The report saysthat “an agreement is needed on all sides to create a protective zone around the ZNPP in order to avoid damage” and calls for an immediate cessation of shelling of the plant and its environs in order to maintain the physical integrity of the nuclear power plant.
