You can’t just sit around in Vienna right now. Something must be done urgently, preferably immediately. What he would like most is to travel to Chernobyl personally, to get an idea, to negotiate, to calm the situation. This was stated by the director general of the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Rafael Mariano Grossi. That was a week ago. At the time, Russian troops had just fired on the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant building in southeastern Ukraine and finally seized control of the plant, an unprecedented event in the history of nuclear power.
