Meeting of Zelenskyy and Grossi

On August 30, the long-awaited meeting between the president of Ukraine and the director general of the IAEA

An IAEA mission arrived in Kyiv today. At the head of the delegation came the organization's general director — Rafael Grossi. Since the situation is extremely critical and provocative due to the deliberate destructive actions of the occupiers at the Zaporizhzhia NNP, it requires special attention.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted the importance of the personal presence of Rafael Grossi and the IAEA team at the ZNPP to resolve the situation. The main goal, for now, is to demilitarize Europe's largest nuclear power plant.

"We want the IAEA mission headed by director Grossi to find an opportunity, thanks to our special services, security corridors, to get to the station and do their best to avoid global threats," Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Also, in a dialogue with Grossi, the president of Ukraine emphasized the urgency of "the demilitarization of the station, the withdrawal of any Russian military with explosives, any weapons, the liberation of our station, the creation of a demilitarized zone and the transfer of the station under the control of Ukraine."

An IAEA delegation consisting of 15 people arrived in Kyiv this morning. Grossi plans to leave several employees in Energodar for round-the-clock monitoring of the station.

We remind you that Holtec International is ready to build a plant in Ukraine to produce components for the SMR-160 small modular reactor.
