UN experts make first inspection of Russian-held Zaporizhzhia power plant in Ukraine

The United Nations nuclear experts have made their first inspection of the Russian-held Zaporizhzhia power plant in Ukraine.

International Atomic Energy Agency Chief Rafael Grossi in a statement said, the plant and physical integrity of the plant had been violated several times.

According to media reports, the inspectors were accompanied to the plant by Russian soldiers after a risky journey delayed by shelling. Russia and Ukraine accused each other of trying to sabotage the mission. Zaporizhzhia, in southern Ukraine, is Europe’s largest nuclear plant. It was occupied by Russia soon after it started special military operations against Ukraine in February.
