Franceinfo: Has the resignation of Oksana Pokaltchouk became inevitable?
Jérôme Pellistrandi: There is really an ambiguity in this report which justifies the resignation of the representative of Amnesty International in Ukraine.

So cities become objectives and, de facto, civilian populations are targets.

After the bombing of the Zaporijia nuclear power plant in Ukraine, the largest in Europe, the International Atomic Energy Agency believes that the situation is increasingly "volatile". What's the risk ?
A nuclear accident is far from being excluded. A nuclear reactor is not made to be in the middle of the fights. The reactor tanks are supposed to resist, for example, the impact of a small plane. But if you destroy annex installations such as transformers, cooling systems, you are jeopardizing the operation of the power station. It is playing with fire to have these fights and this militarization of the area around the power plant, militarization which is linked to the Russian occupation.
Cereal exports resumed thanks to the agreement signed between Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and the United Nations, can the pace of these exports accelerate?
The ports around Odessa are not about to find the pre-war rhythm. The vessels that evacuate cereals are searched in search of an armament exit. It is a very slow process. Only a few hundred thousand tonnes of cereals will be exported to the 20 to 25 million tonnes to go out. It will still take a long time.
