IAEA's Grossi confirms inspections in Ukraine

STORY: The move to send inspectors follows statement by a senior Russian officer that institutes in Ukraine linked to the nuclear industry were engaged in preparations to produce such a bomb.

Russia's state news agency RIA had earlier identified what it said were the two sites involved in the operation - the Eastern Mineral Enrichment Plant in central Dnipropetrovsk region and the Institute for Nuclear Research in Kyiv.

Grossi said the inspectors would reach a conclusion on the accusations within “days” of undertaking their work.
