The special commission of the International Atomic Energy Agency visited the Ukrainian nuclear facility from 1 to 3 September. Currently, there are only 2 international experts at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. They will monitor the situation and provide IAEA with information on the status of the station. The permanent presence is expected to have an impact on stabilizing the situation. The rest of the specialists left the object captured by the Russian occupiers and drafted a response about the visit.
The commission document was 52 pages long. The report indicates damage to the facility. They create the danger of an increase in the level of radiation not only in the Zaporizhzhia region and Ukraine but also throughout the world. The IAEA, therefore, concluded that there was an urgent need to take temporary measures to prevent a nuclear accident, particularly establishing a safe zone around the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. The International Agency is ready to begin consultations for the urgent establishment of such a zone.
The commission does not, however, call for the demilitarization of the site.
