Russia is ready to discuss the situation at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant with the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Russian state-owned nuclear power giant Rosatom said on Tuesday, following accusations leveled against Russia by the Ukrainian president accusing it of “nuclear compromise”.

Moscow is ready to negotiate “ensuring nuclear safety” and “understanding the evolution of the situation in the factory” during the expected visit of Rafael Grossi to the plant this week, said Renat Kartsaa, adviser to the CEO of Rosatom, on state television Russia 24.

“We are open to these questions,” stated the Kartsaaas reported by the state news agency RIA Novosti.

IAEA chief Rafael Grossi tweeted last Sunday that he was on his way to assess first-hand the “nuclear safety situation at the facility”.

On Monday, he met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who visited the Zaporizhia and Dnipro regions.

“I met with the head of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi. The issue is clear: the safety of our energy industry, our nuclear plants. First of all, the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, which Russia still uses for blackmail”Zelensky said in his night speech from Dnipro yesterday, Monday.
