The russian occupiers are making every effort to prevent the IAEA mission from getting acquainted with the real state of affairs at the Zaporizhzhia NPP. This is reported by NNEGC Energoatom in Telegram.
"The russian occupiers are making every effort to prevent the mission of the International Atomic Energy Agency from getting acquainted with the real state of affairs at the Zaporizhzhia NPP. They are spreading manipulative and false information about this visit", - the message says.
They reminded that the overwhelming majority of "media from all over the world" who arrived at the station yesterday are russian propagandists. Buses with Ukrainian and foreign journalists, who were trying to get to the Zaporizhzhia NPP together with the IAEA mission through the territory of Ukraine, were not allowed by the russians at the checkpoint.
In addition, the invaders lie, distort the facts and evidence testifying to their shelling of the station, as well as the consequences of damage to the ZNPP infrastructure. Predictably, they blame the AFU.
Energoatom notes that military trucks that violate all fire safety requirements are in the engine rooms of power units, the russians presented them to the IAEA experts as equipment of the chemical defense troops. They are trying to hide all the violations of nuclear and radiation safety they have created in lies and manipulations.
"The rashists did not let the mission into the ZNPP crisis center, where the russian military are now located, not supposed to be seen by representatives of the IAEA. That is, part of the armed russian occupiers at the nuclear power plant was simply "hidden", - the NAEK reports.
It is noted that the missions "presented" a pre-planned and staged show, as if "the residents of Energodar complain about the shelling by the AFU". Or rather, they talk about the shelling that the invaders stubbornly attribute to the Ukrainian defenders.
At the same time, the occupiers deliberately jammed mobile communications and the Internet in Energodar in order to prevent the transmission of photos and videos from the ZNPP and its satellite town. The rashists allowed only operational personnel to work at the Zaporizhzhia NPP and significantly limited the stay of people on the routes of members of the IAEA delegation.
"We understand that under these conditions, it will be difficult for the IAEA to give an objective assessment of the situation at the ZNPP. At the same time, we emphasize that it is impossible to fulfill all the recommendations of the mission to restore nuclear and radiation safety at the plant while it is under the control of the russian occupation forces", - Energoatom writes.
As previously reported, the russian occupiers did not allow representatives of the Ukrainian and world media, as well as the OSCE mission, to enter the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.
