The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) holds this Monday (21) an assessment of the situation at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, in Ukraine, during the day, as announced by the director general of the agency, Rafael Grossi.
The IAEA leader even asked for the troops “put an end to this madness” after a series of firefights that he considered “deliberate and targeted”. Russia and Ukraine accused each other again on Sunday (17) of having bombed the plant, located in the south of Ukraine and occupied by the Russian army.
“There was damage in some pretty tricky places”, Grossi said in an interview with French broadcaster BFM-TV. “The people who do this know where they are hitting. It is absolutely deliberate, directed”.
“On Saturday and Sunday, the forces Ukrainian women shot about large-caliber projectiles against the plant,” he said in a statement. The document also mentions that energy blocks number 4 and 5 were hit, in addition to the roof of a “special building”. This building houses a nuclear fuel depot, according to an official from the Russian nuclear electricity producer Rosenergoatom, quoted by the Russian TASS agency. Despite these bombings, “the level of radiation in the plant area remains within the norm” , added the Ministry of Defense.
