Grossi said that members of the IAEA mission will remain at the nuclear facility in Innerhodar until September 3, after which it will be decided whether the organization has a permanent observer in the station area. Grossi left the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant in the afternoon.
“Some of his colleagues are staying (at the nuclear power plant) because there are a few detailed issues that require more time and a calmer environment for discussion. I ask you to help my colleagues so that we can fully assess the whole situation,” Grossi was quoted by the RIA Novosti news agency as saying. My team will have the opportunity to talk (about the situation) with the residents of Inerhodar,” the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency added to reporters.
Oleksiy Krumov, Deputy Head of the General Directorate of Operations of the Ukrainian General Staff, told a press conference in Kyiv that Russian forces had received instructions from Russian President Vladimir Putin to reach the administrative borders of the Donetsk region by September 15.
The military commander said that Russian forces continue to occupy parts of Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhya, Kherson and Mykolaiv provinces and are trying to create favorable conditions for another offensive operation. “The Russian occupying forces are again adjusting their plans on Putin’s orders and, accordingly, they should reach the administrative borders of the Donetsk region by September 15,” said Harumov. He added that the Russian forces continue to redeploy their military units in the occupied territories, most likely to create conditions for the resumption of the offensive in the Donetsk area of operations.
“According to the information they obtained, due to the significant losses in personnel, the Supreme Command of the Russian Armed Forces decided to dissolve the 31st separate airborne assault brigade and the 22nd special purpose brigade of the Airborne Forces, taking into account that less than 20 percent of the soldiers survived,” the representative of the General Staff said. “.
In the report on the state of the evening battlefield of the Ukrainian General Staff, he wrote that the Ukrainian soldiers stopped the offensive operations of the Russian forces in the Donetsk region in three directions – towards Sloviansk, Bakhmut and Avzhigivka – and in the south, in the direction Novopavlevsk in the Mykolaiv region.
