SIMFEROPOL, 31 Aug — PRIME. Two power units at the Zaporizhzhya NPP are operating at 60 and 80 percent respectively on Wednesday, the head of the regional administration Yevhen Balitsky said.
“At the Zaporozhye NPP, the fifth and sixth power units are operating at 60 and 80 percent, respectively,” Balitsky said on the air of Solovyov Live.
Balitsky also added that he has no illusions about the visit of the IAEA delegation to ZNPP, since he does not consider the structure to be independent.
“I have no illusions about this visit. It’s just a pocket organ, a structure. I guarantee that they will leave with the fact that they saw Russian soldiers at the station, and they will say: look, the military is standing at the station. Yes, indeed, the military is at the station. there are stations, they protect its work, this is normal… They (the IAEA – ed.), like the OSCE, the Council of Europe, work in the interests of their founders. Even, unfortunately, the UN has also turned into a structure where justice is not needed, there is no need what it was created for – for the balance in the world,” he said.
On Monday, the head of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi, said that the organization’s mission is heading to the ZNPP and will arrive at the site this week. Mikhail Ulyanov, permanent representative of the Russian Federation to international organizations in Vienna, reported to RIA Novosti that the mission includes about a dozen employees of the IAEA secretariat who deal with issues of safeguards and nuclear safety. They are accompanied by a large team of UN staff dealing with logistics and security issues.
