MADRID, Sep. 2 (.) –

Ukrainian Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko has asked the mission of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to affirm that the Russian military presence at the Zaporizhia plant, where inspections are being carried out, is a “real threat”. ” for nuclear safety.

The president of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenski, also expressed himself along these lines on Thursday night, emphasizing that the team headed by the agency’s general director, Rafael Grossi, should demand the “demilitarization” of the plant, as reported by the Ukrinform news agency.

Grossi’s team is currently divided into two groups. One of them will remain working until Sunday on an analysis of the safety and security of the plant that will later be included in a detailed IAEA report.

Grossi confirmed late Thursday that a second group will have a “continuous presence” of the agency inside the facilities to ensure that the “physical integrity” of the plant is not threatened, as on other occasions.

After a first inspection of the plant by the IAEA, Ukraine’s state energy operator, Energoatom, assured this Friday that the Russian side is “spreading manipulative and false information” about the visit.

Thus, Energoatom has assured in its official Telegram profile that the vast majority of the media that attended yesterday to cover the visit are “Russian propagandists”. “They lie, they distort the facts and the evidence that testifies to the bombing of the plant,” he has said.

Zelensky also noted Thursday night that a team of independent journalists were denied entry to objectively report on the situation at the plant. “Unfortunately, the occupiers have not allowed the journalists to enter,” the president said.
