MADRID, 29 (EUROPA PRESS)
This was stated by the agency's director general, Rafael Grossi, at the end of a meeting in Bucharest with the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Dimitro Kuleba, in which he once again advocated protecting Ukraine's energy infrastructure.
In addition, "we continue to work together for the urgent establishment of a security zone around the Zaporiyia nuclear power plant", according to Grossi, who has repeatedly warned of the risks of fighting near what is considered the largest atomic plant in Europe.
Kuleba has confirmed, for his part, that among the issues discussed is the safety of personnel at these facilities, controlled by Russian forces since the beginning of March. "I have reiterated that Russia must withdraw," the head of Ukrainian diplomacy has insisted on his Twitter.
Ukraine has four power plants in total and all of them were disconnected from the power grid last week following a wave of Russian attacks. The IAEA has warned of the risk of such outages to the safety of these plants, although so far it has not detected radioactive leaks in any case.
The President of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenski, has accused Putin of carrying out "nuclear blackmail".
