Coinciding with the dispatch to the area of ​​a mission from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), a spokesman for the US National Security Council, John Kirby, recalled that Russia has “militarized” the largest nuclear power plant in Europe. “We continue to believe that a controlled shutdown of the reactors would be the safest option and less dangerous in the short term,” said Kirby, who applauded the start of the international mission that is called to monitor the situation ‘in situ’.

Kirby, who has appeared at a press conference, has also assessed the evolution of the military front, pointing out that Ukrainian forces now have a “good chance” to regain ground, informs the Politico portal. This Monday, they have announced the start of a counteroffensive in the Kherson area.

Although for now the exact scope of these operations is not clear, the White House assumes that Russia has already had to move resources from the eastern part of Ukraine to the southern part, for fear of losing part of what it has conquered in recent months. .
