There are some reports suggesting that Russian forces may consider withdrawing from the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant.
This is what Petro Kotin, the head of the state nuclear energy firm of Ukraine, said.
“In recent weeks we are effectively receiving information that signs have appeared that they may be preparing to leave (the plant),” Kotin was quoted as saying on national television.
“First, there is a very large number of reports in the Russian media that it is worth liberating (the factory) and perhaps it is worth giving control (of it) to (the International Atomic Energy Agency – IAEA),” he said. referring to the United Nations nuclear watchdog.
“The impression is created that they are packing their bags and stealing everything they can.”
Such news comes a few days after the departure of Russian forces from the city of Kherson.
Asked if it was too early to talk about the withdrawal of Russian troops from the plant, Kotin said on television: “It is too early. We don’t see it now, but they are preparing (to leave).”
