The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) could help ease tensions around the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant by calling on Ukraine to stop shelling the facility, Chairman of the We Stand With Russia movement Vladimir Rogov told TASS.

“That’s for sure. At least, those members of [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky’s regime who commit war crimes and engage in nuclear terrorism would think about the consequences,” he said in response to a question.

According to Rogov, Ukraine would sharply react to such a statement. “I think they would become hysterical, making unfounded allegations that [IAEA Director General Rafael] Grossi was bribed and things like that,” he noted.

Rogov believes that Kiev is sure of its impunity, which is what its orders to Ukrainian troops to shell the nuclear power plant are based on. “The inevitability of punishment is the only thing that can stop these villains,” he added.
