Ukraine wishes for more nuclear equipment

He declared that this includes radiation measurement devices, protective material, computer-related assistance, power supply systems, and diesel generators in a statement.

According to Grossi, they will coordinate the implementation of the help that the IAEA and its member states will provide, including delivering required equipment directly to Ukraine’s nuclear sites.

The needs are significant, and he is very grateful for the considerable support that their Member States have already suggested they will make available.

Ukraine has 15 operational reactors at four plants, of which seven are presently connected to the grid, including two at the Zaporizhzhia facility, which Russia currently controls.

Grossi expressed the IAEA was still not receiving a remote data transmission from its monitoring systems installed at the defunct Chornobyl plant.

Next week Rossi is expected to visit the power station, which Russian forces occupied soon after invading Ukraine but left on March 31. He stated he would hand over radiation monitoring equipment and personal protective equipment.
