Director General Grossi confirmed that both locations are under IAEA safeguards and have been visited regularly by IAEA inspectors. He added that the IAEA received a written request from Ukraine today to send teams of inspectors to carry out verification activities at the two locations.

“The IAEA inspected one of these locations one month ago and all our findings were consistent with Ukraine’s safeguards declarations. No undeclared nuclear activities or material were found there,” said Director General Grossi.

The IAEA is preparing to visit the locations in the coming days. The purpose of the safeguards visits is to "detect any possible undeclared nuclear activities and material”.
