Ukrainian delegation of nuclear power professionals made a demarche at International Conference during the speech of russia representative

From June 27, the Seventh Review Meeting of the Contracting Parties to the Joint Convention on the Safety of Spent Fuel Management and on the Safety of Radioactive Waste Management, hosted by the IAEA, has been taking place in Vienna (Austria).

The terrorist state is widely represented at this event, and despite the objections from the Ukrainian delegation raised to the organizers, its spokespersons not just delivered their reports at one of the meetings, but also chaired several sessions.

Thus, when the speaker from russia began his speech, all attending the event Ukrainian nuclear power professionals, headed by the Acting Chairman of the State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate of Ukraine Oleh Korikov and the Chief Advisor to the President of SE «NNEGC «Energoatom» Oleksandr Motsyk, made a demarche and withdrew.

«putin's russia started unprovoked war against Ukraine. For the first time in the history of nuclear energy, it occupied a nuclear power plant in another country. For the first time in the history of nuclear energy, the russian occupiers are abducting nuclear power plant workers and members of their families. For the first time in the history of nuclear energy, putin's russia is shelling the territory of another country with nuclear power plants, cruise missiles and tactical missiles. And it fires in such a way that the trajectories of the missiles run directly next to the nuclear reactors, almost above the nuclear reactors, at low altitudes – 100–200 meters, which threatens a catastrophe even greater than Chernobyl and Fukushima combined. Therefore, in our opinion, putin's russia does not deserve not only to report to the IAEA, but also simply to be represented in this organization,» said the head of the SNRIU Oleh Korikov before the Ukrainian delegation walked out.
