WARSAW, September 30 – Novosti. Residents of Poland were urged not to consume iodine and lugol for fear of radioactive contamination, despite the fact that earlier on the air of Polish television it was reported that firefighters were provided with such preparations.
Earlier it was reported that in connection with the situation around the Zaporozhye NPP , the Polish authorities are distributing iodine tablets in the regional divisions of the State Fire Protection.
“Attacks on the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant do not pose an immediate threat to the people of Poland. The health and life of the people of Poland are not in danger. Even if the reactors are turned on, and today the reactors remain turned off, we are not threatened by the scenario of Chernobyl or Fukushima,” he said at a press conference. conference head of the State Atomic Energy Agency (PAA) Lukasz Mlynarkevich.
He urged fellow citizens not to use iodine on their own initiative. “There is no need to use drugs with stable iodine or the so-called Lugol’s solution without clear recommendations. Such actions are meaningless and can also be harmful,” Mlynarkevich said.
He said that the PAA had conducted a number of simulations, the results of which show that Poland is not in danger even in the most dramatic scenario.
“There is no need to buy them (drugs – ed.) in reserve, do not take them preventively and do not give them to children. There is no threat to the territory of Poland. And even taking into account Zaporozhye , this situation will not change,” the director of the agency concluded.
Zaporozhye NPP is located on the left bank of the Dnieper near the city of Energodar . This is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe in terms of the number of units and installed capacity – the plant has six power units with a capacity of 1 gigawatt each. Since March, it has been under the protection of the Russian military. The Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized that this step was justified in order to avoid leakage of nuclear and radioactive materials. The Ukrainian military continues to regularly shell Enerhodar and the territory of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant adjacent to the city.
At the beginning of September, an IAEA mission headed by Director General Rafael Grossi arrived at the ZNPP . The head of the delegation of ” Rosatom ” and employees of the Zaporizhzhya NPP led the delegation of the IAEA through its territory and showed the sections of the station that had been damaged during the shelling of Ukrainian troops. Two IAEA employees remained at ZNPP on a permanent basis. As a result of the visit of the mission, the IAEA published a report in which it confirmed the fact of shelling of the station.
