Representatives from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are to visit the plant to assess the site’s safety after an agreement between the UN, Russia and Ukraine. The regional state head Oleksandr Starukh said on Telegram: “The Russians are shelling the pre-agreed route of the IAEA mission from Zaporizhzhia to the ZNPP.
“The UN advance team cannot continue the movement due to security reasons.
“Ukraine continues to make efforts to organise safe access of the international IAEA mission to the ZNPP.
“We demand that the Russian Federation stop the provocations and grant the IAEA unhindered access to the Ukrainian nuclear facility.”
The claims have not been independently verified.
