We consider the message from the head of the IAEA Rafael Mariano Grossi as another attempt to legitimize russian occupation of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station, Ukraine’s nuclear power stations operator Energoatom said in a statement.

“Yesterday, IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi said that they were preparing an expert mission to the Zaporizhzhia NPP due to Europe’s largest nuclear power plant has stopped transmitting online data to the IAEA on the state of nuclear materials. ‘Ukraine requested us, we will go there,’ he wrote in a post on Twitter.

Actually, the ‘loss of connection’ between ZNPP and the IAEA was caused by the actions of the russian occupiers, who cut off the Ukrainian operator Vodafone in Enerhodar with which the IAEA has a contract for data transfer. Currently, all data collection points and servers under the control of the Agency are closed and sealed. The information is stored on the server and will be transferred when Vodafone is turned on,” Energoatom wrote.

According to the Ukrainian nuclear power stations operator, it is very likely that the russian side, with the prior consent of the IAEA, made sure that the Agency “lost control” without access to this information, and therefore the IAEA Director General would have a reason to come to the power plant.

“The Ukrainian side did not invite Grossi to visit ZNPP and had previously denied him such a visit, emphasizing that a visit to the power plant will be possible only when our country regains control over it,” the statement reads.

According to Energoatom, it is no secret that IAEA leadership by almost a quarter [about 100 people] consists of russians. Furthermore, even Grossi’s Deputy – the Head of the Department of Nuclear Energy Mikhail Chudakov – is also a citizen of russia.

As a reminder, writes Enrgoatom, after Grossi’s previous visit to the South-Ukraine NPP, he went to meet with the head of Rosatom, and together they “reported” to the world how good everything was at the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant.
