Serious Situation at Ukraine Nuclear Plant Stabilizing

ENERGODAR: Rafael Grossi, the UN’s nuclear envoy, said that the situation at the Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power facility, which Moscow has captured, was “serious” but stabilising as Kyiv reported success in its counteroffensive.

Fears for Europe’s biggest nuclear plant, which have persisted throughout Moscow’s Ukraine offensive, have been exacerbated by the destruction of a dam that provided the cooling water for the plant.

Grossi, whose trip was delayed by a day as fighting intensified in the southeastern region of Zaporizhzhia, arrived to assess potential risks.

“On the one hand, we can see that the situation is serious, the consequences (of the dam’s destruction) are there, and they are real,” said Grossi, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

“At the same time, there are measures that are being taken to stabilise the situation.” this news agency saw Grossi arrive at the plant in a white jeep with the IAEA blue flag attached to it. His car was followed by armoured vehicles.

He described the trip as “extremely difficult” but “important.” “Until a few hours ago I was not sure whether I would be able to come here and visit the plant,” Grossi said.
