Representatives of Russia tried to put pressure on the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi. This was stated by Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN Serhiy Kislitsa at a meeting of the UN Security Council.
According to him, Russia tried to influence the IAEA during the preparation of a report on the situation at the occupied Zaporozhye nuclear power plant. During his speech, Kislitsa pointed to the representative of Russia, who "wails that he did not have enough time to properly study the published report." The Permanent Representative of Ukraine claims that the “Russian fuss” can only be explained by an attempt to put pressure on Grossi.
On September 6, the IAEA published a report on the state of the plant after the completion of the inspection at the ZNPP. It states that all seven nuclear safety rules have been violated at the ZNPP and there is a risk of a "nuclear incident" if the shelling does not stop.
IAEA experts say that an unprecedented situation has developed in Ukraine. The report states that this is the first time a military conflict has taken place at the facilities of a major active nuclear power program.
