Energoatom discusses the inability of the IAEA to create a safety zone at the ZNPP.
The head of state energy company Energoatom, Petro Kotin, does not believe that the IAEA will be able to achieve the creation of a safety zone around the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. In his opinion, Ukraine has a better chance of reclaiming the nuclear power plant through military means. In particular, according to Bloomberg, Kotin assumes that in the event of a successful offensive by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Zaporizhzhia region and the de-occupation of Melitopol, the Russians will have no other option but to leave the NPP. In an interview with Reuters, he proposed an alternative involving UN peacekeepers. As a permanent member of the UN Security Council, Russia can block the creation of a peacekeeping mission. Still, according to the head of Energoatom, this will only increase general awareness of Moscow’s actions.
