The Permanent Representative of Russia to International organizations in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, accused The Financial Times newspaper of distorting his words about the mission of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to the Zaporozhye NPP. He wrote about this on his Twitter.
As Ulyanov explained, it was about a possible visit of the IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi to the NPP. “The Financial Times attributed to me the words that Mr. Grossi's visit to the NPP cannot take place before the end of August. In fact, I said that Mr. Grossi could offer such a schedule,” he stressed, expressing the opinion that this was a deliberate distortion, which is indicated by the title of the article.
On August 12, Mikhail Ulyanov, in an interview with the Izvestia newspaper, suggested that Grossi himself would designate some kind of reference point about the visit to the NPP “at the very end of August — early September.” After that, The Financial Times published an article entitled “Russia rejects calls to allow access to the Ukrainian nuclear power plant.”
At the same time, Mikhail Ulyanov stressed earlier that Russia is ready to assist in organizing the visit of the international mission of the IAEA.
