    Head of Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant arrested by Russians

    October 2, 2022 - dpa


      Moscow — Russian authorities have informed the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that the head of Ukraine's Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, Ihor Murashov, has been "temporarily detained to answer questions," according to an IAEA spokesperson in Vienna.

      According to Ukrainian sources, Murashov was abducted by Russian troops. The president of the Ukrainian operating company Energoatom, Petro Kotin, said that the power plant boss had been stopped on the road by a Russian patrol at the Enerhodar nuclear power plant site the previous day, dragged out of the car and taken blindfolded to an unknown location.

      "There are no findings on his fate," Kotin told the Telegram news channel. He accused Russia of nuclear terrorism against the management and staff of the power plant. Murashov, who bears the main responsibility for the safe functioning and nuclear safety of the plant, must be released immediately, he said. Kotin also called on the IAEA head Rafael Grossi to press for Murashov's release.

      The IAEA contacted the Russian authorities and demanded clarification.
