IAEA head comes to the occupied Zaporizhzhya NPP

This is reported in the Telegram channel of the Ukrainian Energoatom.

The IAEA head decided to visit the Zaporizhzhya NPP to personally assess the consequences for it of the Kakhovka dam break.

Earlier, he explained that he was going there to personally assess how the break of the Kakhovka dam had complicated “the already precarious nuclear safety situation” at the plant.

“I want to go there, discuss with the management there what measures they are taking and then make a more accurate assessment of what kind of danger is threatening us”, the IAEA head said.

Because of the destruction of the Kakhovka hydroelectric dam and the withdrawal of water from the Kakhovka reservoir, the cooling ponds of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, which stood on the bank of the reservoir, lost the ability to replenish the water supply from it. However, according to experts, there is no direct danger of an accident at the nuclear power plant, which was seized by the Russians and shut down.
