    Grossi warns from Dnipro that military activity around the Zaporiyia power plant "is increasing."

    March 29, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras



      "There is an increasing number of troops and military vehicles, heavy artillery and more military action around the plant," Grossi said in an interview with CNN, adding that the plant has been suffering "repeated" blackouts.

      He said that "in a few hours" he and his team will cross "the front line", as they did last year. "I will continue my consultations to try to establish protection around the plant and avoid a nuclear accident with possible catastrophic consequences," he said.

      Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelenski visited positions near the front line in the Zaporiyia region on Monday and was also able to meet with Grossi, with whom he also shared the situation at the Dnieper hydroelectric power plant.

      It will be the second time that the IAEA Director General - accompanied by a group of experts, the seventh of its kind since the support mission began working at the plant - has visited Europe's largest nuclear power plant, and the first since the IAEA's permanent presence was deployed on September 1.

      Grossi said over the weekend that his trip also seeks to ensure a regular rotation of IAEA experts to and from the plant following the problems that affected the February rotation, which was delayed by almost a month.
