“I plan to return to Zaporozhye. In the next ten days or so I will be there, then to Kyiv and Russia.”– he said.

According to Grossi, during his visit to the Zaporizhia NPP, the next, 16th, rotation of personnel will take place, and he will communicate with the Russian management of the plant.

The IAEA Director General also noted the readiness of Kyiv and Moscow to cooperate with the organization, despite the fact that tension sometimes arises during communication.

At the end of December, the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to international organizations in Vienna notified the IAEA that there were enough personnel at the Zaporozhye NPP to ensure its safe operation. The agency was also informed that the background radiation both at the facility itself and in its surroundings does not exceed the norm.
