“Imagine what it means through Kyiv - it means that they will enter the Zaporizhzhya NPP through the front line,” RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.

According to Vishnevetsky, this path of the IAEA mission is a big risk, since the Armed Forces of Ukraine are “non-homogeneous armed formations.”

Earlier, the representative of the UN Secretary General Stefan Dujarric said that the UN is ready to facilitate the visit of the delegation of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to the Zaporozhye NPP through Ukraine.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that Moscow strongly condemns attempts to obstruct the IAEA mission to the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.
