Ukraine – IAEA confirms the absence of undeclared nuclear materials and activities (3 November 2022)


IAEA inspectors have completed their verification activities and concluded that there are no indications of undeclared nuclear materials or activities at Ukrainian locations. The Agency’s investigation was carried out at the request of the Ukrainian government in order to respond to Russian allegations that material from those locations was being diverted to enable Ukraine to make and use a “dirty bomb” on its territory. The IAEA investigation shows that Russia’s false, irresponsible allegations have zero basis in fact. France commends the transparency shown by Ukraine.
