The UN announced the continuation of discussions on the security zone around the ZNPP

UN, Oct 12 – PRIME. Discussions about the creation of a security zone around the Zaporizhzhya NPP continue, UN Secretary General’s spokesman Stefan Dujarric said at a briefing.

The head of the IAEA discussed with the head of Rosatom the security zone around the ZNPP

“These discussions are ongoing. They are being led by Mr. Grossi (IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi – ed.),” Dujarric said.

“What we are seeing after the initiative to create a zone was announced … is, in fact, we are moving in the wrong direction. We are seeing more and more clashes,” he added.

Zaporozhye NPP is located on the left bank of the Dnieper near the town of Energodar. This is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe in terms of the number of units and installed capacity – the plant has six power units with a capacity of 1 gigawatt each. Since March, it has been under the protection of the Russian military. The Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized that this step was justified in order to avoid leakage of nuclear and radioactive materials. The Ukrainian military continues to regularly shell Enerhodar and the territory of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant adjacent to the city.

In early September, an IAEA mission headed by Director General Rafael Grossi arrived at the ZNPP. The head of the delegation of “Rosatom” and the staff of the station led the delegation of the IAEA through its territory and showed the sections of the station that had been damaged during the shelling of Ukrainian troops. Two IAEA employees remained at ZNPP on a permanent basis. As a result of the visit of the mission, the IAEA published a report in which it confirmed the fact of shelling of the ZNPP.
