IAEA nuclear safety chief at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power station

The UN atomic watchdog chief is expected on Wednesday to visit Ukraine’s
Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, which is currently held by Russian
forces. There are persistent fears about the safety of the nuclear plant —
Europe’s largest — which is located in the southern Zaporizhzhia region
where there has been frequent shelling since Russian troops invaded. Rafael
Grossi, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and his
delegation are expected to arrive Wednesday morning and leave by afternoon,
according to the Russian news agency TASS, citing an official with Russia’s
nuclear operator Rosenergoatom. This will be Grossi’s second visit to
Zaporizhzhia since Russia invaded Ukraine in February last year, and he
plans to “assess first-hand the serious nuclear safety and security
situation at the facility”, according to the IAEA.
