A representative of Rosenergoatom stated that if the IAEA wants to inspect a facility that is not related to nuclear safety in any way, they will be denied this.
After the shelling by the Russian occupiers of the Zaporizhzhya NPP, the representative of Rosenergoatom stated that the inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) may not be allowed to visit certain facilities. This is reported by the Russian mass media.
Renat Karchaa, whom Russian media call “advisor to the general director of the Rosenergoatom concern”, said that the occupiers who seized the Ukrainian station will grant the IAEA access “strictly within the mandate”:
“…If they want to inspect an object that is not related to nuclear safety, they will be denied this,” the message reads.
The press service of the IAEA reported on November 20 that the agency’s inspectors plan to assess the consequences of the shelling on Monday. According to the IAEA, the sprinkler systems of the cooling pond, a cable to one of the generators, condensate tanks and a bridge between the reactor and auxiliary facilities were damaged.
