The Russian Foreign Ministry accused Kiev of trying to disrupt the IAEA mission at the NPP

The Russian Foreign Ministry accused the Ukrainian authorities of trying to disrupt the IAEA mission to the Russian ESMID and accused the Ukrainian authorities of trying to disrupt the mission of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to the Zaporozhye NPP.

This is reported by RIA Novosti.

The ministry’s statement says that official Kiev is doing everything to disrupt the visit of the IAEA experts to Zaporozhye. The diplomats emphasize that, despite this, the calculation of the Ukrainian authorities to disrupt the inspection visit will not be justified.

Earlier, the IAEA mission received security guarantees from Russia and Ukraine for a visit to the nuclear power plant. “Now an IAEA mission can be deployed there [at the NPP], an independent mission that will be protected,” French President Emmanuel Macron said. Deputy Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN Dmitry Polyansky said that the delegation to the NPP will include technical specialists, including from the Russian Rosatom and from Ukraine. According to him, the mission will be of a technical nature, experts will assess the condition of the station.
