The head of the IAEA left the territory of the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant. Several IAEA observers remained there. IAEA chief Grossi said the mission had managed to gather a lot of important information in a few hours at the Zaporizhzhya NPP, he saw “key things” he wanted to see.
The Russian Defense Ministry announced that the military provocation carried out by the Kiev regime on the day of the arrival of the international mission was planned. Here are the details of the operation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine carried out on the morning of September 1 : LINK
According to the MoD the military actions of Ukrainian sabotage groups unleashed on the day of the arrival of the IAEA experts and artillery shelling of the Zaporozhye nuclear Power Plant by the Ukrainian Armed Forces leave no doubt that the military provocation was prepared by V. Zelensky’s regime.
The visit of the NPP by the IAEA experts was planned to take place on August 31 but it was later postponed due to the “unscheduled” meeting of R. Grossi with V. Zelensky. The reason of the changed schedule was the need of the Ukrainian military to complete the preparation of the operation to capture the Zaporozhye NPP.
It is obvious that in case of success of the Kiev regime’s operation aimed at seizing the station, the head of the IAEA R.Grossi and the mission’s experts would become a “human shield” of Ukrainian saboteurs in order to prevent any actions to destroy the Ukrainian grouping by units of the Russian armed forces.
The role of the IAEA mission in such a scenario would be limited to anchoring the new status quo, – “Zaporizhzhya NPP has come under Kiev’s full control”. This would be immediately followed by loud statements from Washington and European capitals urging and demanding that Russia provide a “demilitarised zone” around the NPP, where IAEA observers are to remain, but under the protection of the Ukrainian military.
This provocation was thwarted by the effective actions of the units of the Russian armed forces and Rosgvardiya. The IAEA mission headed by R. Grossi arrived at the nuclear power plant and made their work with full security of their safety by the Russian side. The Russian Ministry of Defense claimed respect to the position of R. Grossi and his team, who came to the station, despite the provocations of Kiev and the shelling of the AFU.
In this regard, we completely understand the deathly silence of all Western sponsors of V. Zelensky’s regime, which actually confirms their tacit participation in the preparation of today’s provocation at the Zaporozhye NPP, the Ministry claimed. At the same time, the absence of a public reaction on the part of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres regarding Kiev’s actions in the area of the Zaporozhye NPP causes reasonable bewilderment.
Such silence not put in doubt the objectivity of the UN approaches in the situation in the Zaporozhye NPP, but also leads to a further escalation of the situation there with complete impunity of the Kiev regime.
