UNITED NATIONS, November 9. /TASS/. Russia hopes that the IAEA will continue its inspections in Ukraine in order to prevent developing a "dirty bomb" at other facilities besides the ones the agency has already inspected, Alexander Shevchenko, a Russian delegate to the UN General Assembly session on the IAEA annual report, said on Wednesday.
"We took into account the IAEA’s inspections of these facilities. We treat the professional approach of the IAEA leadership with respect and note that the analysis of the obtained materials continues. That said, we would like to stress that Kiev has the necessary production base and research potential to create a ‘dirty bomb’ and they are not limited to the inspected facilities. We proceed from the premise that such inspections are only the beginning and the agency will continue to monitor as closely as possible any possible signs of Kiev deviating from implementing its agreements on guarantees with the agency," he said.
"We are urging the IAEA to pay the closest attention to any information on possible provocations by the Kiev regime with the use of a ‘dirty bomb’," the diplomat added.
