euractiv | Ukraine, UN agree parameters for IAEA mission to nuclear plant, 19 Aug
Zelenskyy told a news conference after the talks in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv that Russia should immediately withdraw its forces and stop shelling from the nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine.
[...]
"We agreed with the secretary general the [possible] conditions of a possible mission by the IAEA to the Zaporizh* nuclear plant, in a legal way, via territory free from occupiers [shelling UAF shelling EUROPE'S LARGEST NUCLEAR POWER PLANT]," Zelenskyy told reporters. "Russia should immediately and unconditionally withdraw its forces from territory of Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, as well as stopping any provocations and shelling," he said.
NOT ONE INCH. NOT ONE IAEA ENGINEER. Stand your ground, Uncle Volody!
The crowded news conference lasted nearly an hour, with the three leaders and well over 100 journalists straining in the heat. Zelensk*, clad in his trademark khaki T-shirt, appeared visibly frustrated when the simultaneous translation failed, slowing down the news conference considerably [but not artillery exchange over EUROPE'S LARGEST NUCLEAR POWER PLANT].

ABC | UN nuclear agency again asks to visit Ukraine nuclear plant, 23 Aug accessories
Ukraine's U.N. Ambassador Sergiy Kyslytsya welcomed the readiness of the IAEA's Grossi to send a mission to Zaporizh*. He said earlier Tuesday Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba responded to Grossi's letter with the proposed IAEA itinerary saying it is in compliance with Ukrainian legislation "and in general might be accepted."

"Further arrangements are to be made based on the security conditions and require communication of detailed route plans and other logistical aspects as soon as possible," Kyslytsya said.

After last week's high-level meeting in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv involving U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and the presidents of Ukraine and Turkey, it appeared progress had been made on an IAEA mission to the plant. But there had been no sign of progress until [U.N. political chief Rosemary] DiCarlo's announcement [23 Aug].

Kyslytsya stressed that Ukraine would like to see the IAEA mission bolstered by incorporating "military and political components," and having IAEA experts remain at the plant until it is returned to Ukraine.
