IAEA mission reaches ZNPP, Ukrainians raiding NPP trained abroad
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has arrived at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant (ZNPP) to carry out basic measures to ensure physical and nuclear security and safeguards at the facility.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) arrived on Thursday at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant (ZNPP), according to a Sputnik correspondent.
IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi said on Monday that the mission will arrive at the ZNPP this week.
Grossi had reiterated the need to send a mission to carry out basic measures to ensure physical and nuclear security and safeguards at the facility.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had earlier said it was actively consulting with all parties on sending a mission to the ZNPP as soon as possible.
On Wednesday, Vladimir Rogov, a member of the main council of the Zaporizhzhia Region administration, told Sputnik that a Ukrainian sabotage group was plotting a terrorist attack at the Zaporozhye NPP during the visit of the IAEA expert mission to show that Russia is unable to provide security.
The official confirmed yesterday that the sabotage group has been detained in Enerhodar and revealed Thursday that the soldiers were trained abroad, and the operation was carried out under the control of British special services.
Earlier in the day, local authorities reported that 60 Ukrainian paratroopers tried to seize the ZNPP. The majority of Ukrainian soldiers were neutralized, while 12 remain blocked.

"According to the information I have from sources close to [Ukrainian Presiden Volodymyr] Zelenskyy, the people who participated in the attempt to seize the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant were trained by the British and Polish intelligence services and literally returned to Ukraine through Odesa in late August," Rogov told Sputnik today.
