IAEA chief arrives at occupied Zaporizhzhia NPP

Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Rafael Grossi has arrived at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant controlled by the Russian occupiers.

This is reported by The Guardian.

The arrival was confirmed by the IAEA spokesperson.

As noted, the IAEA chief is visiting Europe's largest nuclear power plant, which has been occupied by Russian forces almost since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, to inspect the situation on the ground.

As reported, Grossi went to Zaporizhzhia NPP to assess the plant's security status.

He has long called for the creation of a security zone around the ZNPP.

On Monday, the IAEA chief met with President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and, according to him, will "most likely" go to Russia in the coming days.
