Grossi: No weapons found in Ukrainian power plants

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has not found any weapons or military equipment in Ukrainian nuclear power plants (NPP) it has examined so far, the organization's Director General Rafael Grossi (pictured) stated on Tuesday.

Speaking before the European Parliament (EP), Grossi said the IAEA found the claims Ukraine has been storing Western-made weapons in its NPPs as unsupported, managing thus to "debunk accusations of illegal things and very dangerous things taking place in these facilities" like when Moscow and Kiev accused each other of planning to use the so-called dirty bomb.

Grossi's comments came in response to the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service's (SVR) earlier claims that Ukraine has been hiding the weapons and military equipment it received from the West in NPPs.
