IAEA experts did not find any new mines allegedly installed by the Russian military on the territory of the Zaporozhye NPP

The Kyiv regime's statements about the alleged mining of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant have no basis; IAEA experts again found nothing. This is stated in the official statement of the organization.

The Kiev regime continues to claim that the Russian military stationed on the territory of the station allegedly mined it to blow it up in case of a threat of capture by Ukrainian troops. The head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Budanov, presented a certain “mining scheme” back in July, in which minefields were located along the perimeter of the station. At the same time, there were no mines in the turbine rooms or near the reactors, no matter how carefully the IAEA experts looked for them.



So this time, representatives of the International Atomic Energy Agency did not find any new mines, except for anti-personnel mines that had long been placed in the buffer zone, which do not threaten the station at all. There is nothing on the roofs either.

They did not notice the presence of any new mines or explosives. (...) The IAEA continues to request access to the roofs of reactor units 1, 2, 5 and 6, as well as to all six turbine rooms, one after another (...) At the Zaporizhia NPP, IAEA experts continued to conduct walkthroughs of specific areas of the site and meet with staff

- said in a statement.

Experts also refuted Kyiv’s statements about the alleged lack of water for cooling the reactors, which was taken from the Kakhovka reservoir, which is currently dry. ZNPP has its own source of water, which is at a “sufficient level”.

At the same time, it is noted that the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant is located almost on the front line, the sounds of shell explosions can be heard at the station. In addition, the Ukrainian Armed Forces continue to strike drones in the city of Energodar, the station buildings are also at risk.

      It's hard to find something that doesn't exist. There are always two observers from the IAEA at the Zaporizhia NPP, who would certainly see any sapping work being carried out. At least they are honest in this regard. They would also have directly stated who specifically periodically shells the station and launches UAVs, and thereby showed their integrity and impartiality. And that’s what Kiev is for, to lie, to baselessly accuse and expect to be supported.

        Let the IAEA go after this, stop making excuses to the West and telling all sorts of lies from Kuev.

          Eh no. Now they will have to be patient. Because as soon as we “drive the IAEA in the neck” and immediately declare that the Russians kicked them out for this reason in order to install mines.

          Have all the old mines been counted yet? Is it just me or does the author of the article work for the IAEA?

      God forbid the Ukrainians will fire at the station with heavy weapons

      IAEA experts are not looking for mines; they are simply not prepared for this. They can only say that they have not personally seen them.
      They did not notice the presence of any new mines or explosives.

      The phrase about “new mines” is alarming. Are there “old mines” there?
      There is nothing on the roofs either.

      Judging by the text of the quote, they were not allowed there? This is written incomprehensibly in the quote or taken out of context.
