UN says attack at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant extremely disturbing & completely unacceptable

The head of the United Nations nuclear watchdog has warned that whoever fired artillery at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant was playing with fire.

The International Atomic Energy Agency said on Sunday, November 20, that more than a dozen blasts shook the nuclear plant. IAEA head Rafael Grossi said the attacks were extremely disturbing and completely unacceptable.
He said whoever is behind this must stop it immediately.

Citing information provided by plant management, an IAEA team on the ground said that there had been damage to some buildings, systems, and equipment, but none of them were critical for nuclear safety and security.

Zaporizhzhia is Europe’s largest nuclear power station situated in southeast Ukraine. It has faced repeated shelling, raising fears of a nuclear disaster. Meanwhile, Moscow and Kyiv have blamed each other for the attacks.
