Monday, 12 June 2023

Rafael Grossi, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), went to Ukraine to meet with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and present a program of assistance after the destruction of the dam of the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant (HPP) by the Russian forces.

"On my way to Ukraine to meet President Zelenskyy and present a programme of assistance in the aftermath of the catastrophic Nova Kakhovka dam flooding," Grossi tweeted.

He added that he would assess the situation at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant and replace the IAEA mission personnel with an enhanced team.

Earlier in June, the IAEA stated that there was no "immediate risk to nuclear safety" at the Zaporizhzhia NPP after the destruction of the Kakhovka HPP.
