At the same time, Igor Vishnevetsky, Deputy Director of the Department for Nonproliferation and Arms Control of the Russian Foreign Ministry, told reporters that it would be unsafe to deliver a mission of IAEA experts to the Zaporozhye NPP through Kyiv, they would have to cross the front line.The Foreign Ministry pointed to the encouragement by the West of the shelling of the ZNPP by Ukraine “The UN does not want to facilitate the visit of the IAEA, therefore it invents various awkward routes, knowing full well that then there will be a security issue or the IAEA delegation will simply not be allowed in, they say, you see – the line of contact, checkpoints are closed and so on – or they will try to carry out a provocation in the form of shelling, explosions and the like in order to disrupt the visit and blame Russia for this,” Rogov told RIA Novosti. Rogov stressed that the only route where the IAEA inspections are guaranteed safety is through the territory of Russia .The permanent representative of the Russian Federation to international organizations in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, reported that the IAEA has begun work on sending a second mission to the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, but while the agency's director general Rafael Grossi is on vacation, the process is not so active. In a conversation with RIA Novosti, Ulyanov announced Russia's readiness to actively cooperate in the IAEA to organize such a mission.
