The IAEA mission left Kyiv in the direction of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant

70

A convoy with inspectors from the International Atomic Agency left Kyiv this morning and is moving towards the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant. This trip of the IAEA representatives can rightfully be called the most secret one. The fact that the inspectors arrived in the Ukrainian capital was reported yesterday by the CNN agency, citing eyewitnesses. In the same way, the Reuters agency reports about the departure of the convoy from Kyiv in the direction of the ZNPP this morning, again referring to eyewitness accounts.


An International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) team traveled Wednesday from the Ukrainian capital to the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant to inspect damage following shelling nearby that raised fears of a radiation catastrophe

Reuters reported.

The agency also quotes IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi, head of the delegation, who said that the experts intend not only to inspect the state of the nuclear power plant, but also to establish a permanent representation there.

When the inspectors will get to Energodar, next to which the Zaporizhzhya NPP is located, is still unknown. Contradictory information is received about the terms of the commission's work at the station. Earlier it was reported that the inspection would last for three days. However, the head of the Zaporozhye military-civilian administration, Yevhen Balitsky, said that "the program of the visit is designed for one day" and called the goals of the visit "vague."

According to the head of the Zaporozhye VGA, the motorcade will go to the nuclear power plant through the city of Vasilyevka in the Zaporozhye region, which is under the control of Russian forces, and from there - immediately to Energodar. Balitsky said that the Russian side is ready to provide inspectors with evidence of targeted shelling by the Armed Forces of Ukraine of the station in the form of protocols, traces of hits, fragments of rockets and drones, as well as eyewitness accounts. At the same time, he expressed doubts that, based on the results of the inspection of the nuclear power plant, IAEA specialists would dare to say "the truth about who is a nuclear terrorist."

The day before, the Russian and Ukrainian sides accused each other of trying to disrupt the IAEA mission. At the same time, representatives of the Zaporozhye VGA refer to the shelling of the Enerhodar coastline, while Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, accuses Russian troops of trying to prevent inspectors from arriving at the ZNPP. However, the head of the IAEA is quite resolute, judging by his words quoted by Reuters.

This is one of the most important things I want to do and I will do it.

Grossi told reporters the day before.

    . The IAEA mission left Kyiv in the direction of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant


    Well, why? Previously, scouts under the cover of the OSCE aimed at targets and transmitted information to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and now there will be scouts under the cover of the IAEA to point artillery at the same ZNPP and at the location of our units. Why do we need all this? So that their spirit is not there, why do we let them in at all. A frankly stupid decision. Especially on the eve of the planned counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the same sector of the front, let in intelligence officers hiding behind the IAEA mission. There are simply no words.

      I also thought - but they won’t set up “beacons” there?
      As far as I understand, the security of the ZNPP per se is of no interest to anyone in Ukraine, not in Europe, and, especially, in the United States.
      The main goal of the IAEA mission is to accuse Russia of being unable to provide this very security. And since the perpetrators have already been appointed, the IAEA has nothing to do there for a day. To get to the station, blame Russia and on the way back try not to fall under the shelling of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - that's the whole "mission".

        In any case, nothing good will come of this mission for us. On our part, pure masochism, to say the least. After all, Kyiv is following the instructions of the West. And the West will not go against itself. And we will have extra problems.

        It may well be. As already mentioned here, this commission consists of only 2 specific specialists, and even then they are not from the United States or Britain, so they could very well have been planned "at the expense of Russian shelling."
        And Russia will again be to blame. So it is desirable to save this commission, despite the composition.

      ***************************************************************************
      But the navels of the "experts" will not be untied from such "permanent" wishes of theirs? ..

      Zaporizhzhya NPP is already irreversibly owned by Russia, and the security of this facility is ensured exclusively by Russia's forces. With regard to Russia, the UN Security Council did NOT APPOINT any "inspection" (especially "permanent" ...) missions. As, by the way, for the ENTIRE territory of the former united Ukraine, in general ...

      Behind this, the Russian Armed Forces, which are assigned tasks by the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, including "incl." and MILITARY nature, they cannot allow any "international" spies in their rear, especially at STRATEGIC infrastructure facilities. And they won't let...

      Do they want a "permanent presence"?.. Let them place "observers" in the central hotel of Donetsk. Or in a tent near Pesok... It is also possible in Yelenovka. A comfortable place to work in the isolation room will provide...


      As for espionage under the guise of "OSCE inspections", this is a COMMON case. They climb into the IMPRESSED, even into those premises of the "inspected" structures, to which, according to the agreements, access is closed to them ...

      They literally "wait" outside the entrance doors and try to "put their foot in" in order to squeeze in with a "uncomprehending look" (like "why can't we"). Or, at least “put your turnip in” to “look around”. Once the case provided pleasure, with a no less "uncomprehending look", not very politely, with the movement of one's own leg, to throw this "inspector's" leg back.

      And "explain", already from the outside of the door, that the inspectors had a "mistake" ...

        And now imagine - on the approach to the Zaporizhzhya NPP, the commission is covered by artillery. Shakespeare and nephews - all, in short, died.
        And then, 10 minutes after the artillery hit, bells ringing all over the world - "Russia is afraid of an international investigation of its atrocities at the ZNPP and therefore ruined the commission !!!!"
        And after all, it would never occur to anyone to think - where did it come from? The whole world will believe the BBC and CNN.

    For some reason, there is a feeling that even on Ukrainian territory, the Armed Forces of Ukraine or the SBU will fire at them and start yelling that we did it.
    And by and large - it is not at all clear why we need this mission. Does anyone really think that she will be able to stop the shelling of nuclear power plants? It is unlikely that there are so naive people. Our next "goodwill gesture", after which the same commission will mix us with dirt? Well, such a craving for masochism.

      Absolutely agree. The obligatory condition of arrival in Kyiv before the trip convinced me of this. The Kyiv Natsiks, disguised as members of the mission's escort, will probably arrive as a "retinue" along with the commission. And then any options: from sniffing out the situation directly from inside the station - to sabotage planting all sorts of unpleasant surprises on the territory of the station.

    Why let the IAEA to the station at all? Interest Ask. The mission obviously does not include checking who and from where is shelling the station. The IAEA generally does not deal with such issues at all. I think that these are allowed for a different purpose. Considering what the IAEA is doing, I think the Russian Federation is trying to find a legal way to stop the operation of the station so that no one in the whole world says that the station was stopped deliberately in order to worsen the situation of the civilian population of Ukraine. In essence, the IAEA must check whether the station is currently operating according to its routine regime and, if not, how safe it is. Everything else, such as how it can be caused and how to treat it, is not within the authority of the commission. As well, it is not within the authority of the IAEA to conduct research on whether the station tried to engage in experiments to obtain weapons components and how successful it was. From all this, with a reasonable approach for analysis, it may be of interest to know how much fuel for nuclear power plants and what kind of fuel was delivered (documented and actually) to the plant, and how much and what kind of waste was generated and where are they? But I think this is not a secret for the Russian Federation for a long time, and in terms of the operating modes of the reactor, from the moment it gained control over the station, the Russian Federation also gained access to the records of the recorders. Everything else in the report will be interesting only from the point of view of the need to stop power generation by the station.

    The point is to bring disabled people to nuclear power plants - "blind" and "deaf" at the same time. For show in the diplomatic field? So there, for another 50 years, nothing will change as long as the striped and shaved ones are "alive" .... And there are enough "disabled" in the UN, the OSCE, the Red Cross, etc. ..... Well, I think that we will cure this delegation...

    Conflicting information ... that the inspection will last for three days ... Yevgeny Balitsky said that "the program of the visit is designed for one day" ...

    In the news in the morning (Vesti FM) - the term of work is 2 days (Grossi).

    For some reason, everyone is waiting for the mission, or rather the delegation, to confirm the shelling of the station either from Ukraine or from Russia. Is this the task of the delegation? First, let's look at its name: Support and Assistance Mission. That is Support and Help. And on the magate website it says why she is going there:

    The IAEA mission will help ensure nuclear safety and security at the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant and undertake vital safeguards activities.

    Most likely, it will be like this: the delegations will show the damage caused. The delegation will ask the station or area authorities, or even the general in command of the troops in the area, whether they can prevent future damage that could lead to -- and so on. All these people will shrug their shoulders and say - no, if Ukraine continues shelling, then anything can happen. And it will be true. In this case, only an armored dome over the entire station and the installations serving it can protect against damage. The delegation will shrug their shoulders and write in the report: Russia, which currently controls the station and is therefore responsible for its security, agrees that it is not in a position to ensure its security. And this will also be true. So this truth will get into all the reports, and the UN will issue at the next emergency meeting: the safety of the nuclear power plant can be ensured only if the very reason for shelling disappears - that is, if the Russian troops leave from there and stop annoying the Ukrainian troops.

    And everything and everyone will remain at their own. The Armed Forces of Ukraine will continue to throw shells and missiles, and some of them will hit vital places - you can’t intercept everything. And by the way, is there something to intercept? We will continue to show holes in concrete. The IAEA and the UN will continue to express. Ukraine will continue to complain. Everyone will be busy.

    They will come and let them stay there until our complete Victory. They observe, they write letters... Again we are shelled for 3 days. Yesterday, the arm of the secretary of the delegation was torn off... crying ... The return trip cannot be ensured due to its insecurity ... The locals treat us well, they feed us DOSHIRAK regularly ... Kiss my son (daughter) for me ... They shoot again .. crying

    Let's remember. They won't make it. It will be like a bus in Volnovakha shaking with debris.
