Grossi's visit to Zaporozhye NPP is matter of coming weeks, no plans of his visit to Moscow - Russian deputy FM

ZVENIGOROD. June 8 (Interfax) - International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Rafael Grossi will visit the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant in the coming weeks, but there are no plans for his visit to Moscow yet, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Thursday.

"Of course, everything depends on how the situation develops - this criminal act of Kiev is unprecedented by its impudence and absolutely destructive by its consequences and it has a direct impact on the local situation. However, the IAEA director general is preparing for the trip, and I believe this is a matter of coming weeks," Ryabkov told reporters in Zvenigorod.

"There are no plans to visit Moscow or anywhere else besides the Zaporozhye NPP during this trip," he said.
