The Kremlin judges the inspection of the plant by the IAEA to be “very positive”

It is “very positive” that experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency were able to inspect the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant in Ukraine on Thursday, the Kremlin said on Friday. “Overall, we find it very positive that the delegation arrived and started working despite the difficulties and problems,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. “It is too early to make an assessment (…) The team is still there, so it is still too early, but the most important thing is that the mission is there,” he added.

The Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, the largest in Europe, has been occupied since March by Russian forces in southern Ukraine. Its inspection on Thursday by an IAEA team, whose chief Rafael Grossi was present, was eagerly awaited, after weeks of bombardment which raised fears of a nuclear disaster.

Russia, whose forces have occupied the plant since March, and Ukraine accuse each other of the strikes. Some members of the IAEA mission left the plant on Thursday evening but others remained behind.
