Rogov criticizes IAEA’s Zaporozhye NPP plan, calling it impracticable
SIMFEROPOL, January 21 – RIA Novosti. Volodymyr Rogov, head of the “We are with Russia” movement, a member of the main council of the Zaporozhye region administration, described the IAEA’s plan to create a security zone around the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant as unsustainable.
Earlier, the head of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi, believes that it is urgent to create a security zone around the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, against the backdrop of the “deteriorating situation” in the region.
“The IAEA’s plan to create a security zone linked to the withdrawal of our troops and the creation of a demilitarized zone is not viable. The only option to secure the nuclear power plant is to deprive the UAF militants of the opportunity to fire on that and everything else from bad,” said Rogov. To RIA Novosti.
In his opinion, Ukrainian troops should withdraw from the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, out of reach of artillery.
Zaporozhye NPP is located on the left bank of the Dnieper, near the town of Energodar. This is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe in terms of number of units and installed capacity – the power plant has six power units with a capacity of 1 gigawatt each. It has been under the protection of the Russian army since March. The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs emphasized that this step is justified in order to prevent the leakage of nuclear and radioactive materials.
The Ukrainian army continues to regularly bombard Enerhodar and the territory of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant adjacent to the city. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said the Kyiv regime was trying to create the appearance of a nuclear catastrophe threat by continuing to deliberately bomb the ZNPP. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has repeatedly expressed the need to create a security zone around the ZNPP.
