Rosatom’s Director General Sergey Kiriyenko described the plans as “clownery” in a conversation with ITAR-TASS behind the scenes of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
Commenting on NATO Secretary-General Fog Rasmussen’s statement on May 19, he said that “security of nuclear power plants has always been prerogative of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that does its duties well and has leading specialists employed”.
The attempt to replace IAEA specialists seems like “strange mistrust of the IAEA, which enjoys blameless reputation, and unprofessionalism” of NATO.
Kiriyenko believes security at the Ukrainian nuclear power stations should be free of politics. “NATO might have major specialists”, he said, but everybody should mind their own business as IAEA professionals are not trying to settle conflicts.
