Russia's representative could not answer Kravchuk's question about admission of IAEA inspection to temporarily occupied territories
The efforts of the Ukrainian delegation to participate in the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) on resolving the situation in Donbas on the issue of ensuring the IAEA's access to the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions have not yet yielded results, since the Russian side makes it impossible to make a decision on this issue, Ukrainian delegation to the TCG said.
"The head of the Russian delegation, Gryzlov, during the TCG meeting, could not answer a direct question from the head of the Ukrainian delegation about the admission of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspection to the occupied territories," according to the Telegram channel.
In this regard, the Ukrainian delegation reiterated its concern about the unresolved issue of access to the IAEA inspection, and also reminded that "Ukraine reserves the right to appeal to the world community, governments and organizations in order to increase pressure on the Russian Federation, the said inspection was carried out, and Ukraine was able to fulfill its obligations under the Agreement between Ukraine and the IAEA on the Application of Safeguards in Connection with the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and the Additional Protocol to this Agreement."
The head of the Ukrainian delegation, Leonid Kravchuk, offered to provide, starting from February 24, a shuttle bus for transporting citizens across the contact line to the Zolote entry-exit checkpoint, and in case of a relevant appeal from the leadership of international humanitarian organizations, and humanitarian cargo to the territory of the temporarily occupied regions.
