The ENSREG mission to Belarus planned for 16-18 December 2020 was cancelled one day before its departure due to refusal of the Belarusian side to cooperate in the preparation of a physical visit to the Astravyets NPP. The aim of the mission was to assess the nuclear safety situation at the Astravyets NPP, which since its launch in November 2020 has already registered several malfunctions. Cancelation of the ENSREG mission leaves the EU in a blind zone, as the Belarusian regime does not provide credible information about the incidents and nuclear safety situation at the Astravyets NPP.
