Authorities confirmed to RIA Novosti that through its attacks on the plant, Kiev continues to spread “global nuclear terror”.
They also specified that the bombing did not damage the infrastructure or key areas of the plant, while the level of radiation is normal.
For its part, the Russian Defense Ministry confirmed the attack was perpetrated with large-caliber artillery weapons, and that the projectiles hit the oxygen-nitrogen station, as well as the area near the special zone of the first reactor.
In this sense, the military entity determined that the artillery position of the Ukrainian troops was detected in the Dnepropetrovsk region, under the control of Kiev.
Earlier, Russia’s first deputy permanent representative to the UN, Dmitri Polianski, announced that a delegation from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) could visit the plant later this month or early September.
In this regard, the head of the Atomic Agency, Rafael Grossi, confirmed to France 24 television channel that the organization’s personnel would arrive in Zaporozhie in the coming days.
In this sense, Polianski drew attention to the danger that the Ukrainian troops represent for the integrity of the experts, in response to which he asked the government of President Vladimir Zelensky to cease fire in order to allow the actions of the IAEA officials.
He also added the mission will also be made up of technical personnel from the Russian company Rosatom, a world leader in nuclear energy.
Polianski added that during the visit to the plant, security and measures to be taken will be evaluated, in order to then give recommendations.
Currently the International Atomic Energy Agency and the UN are studying a safe route for the delegation.
