IAEA director Rafael Grossi said that as a result of the shelling, three power lines were damaged and windows at the facility were shattered. At the same time, none of the power lines that provide power to the nuclear power plant was not damaged.
Press release cites statement Energoatom that the three reactors of the nuclear power plant continue to operate as usual and none of the personnel was injured.
Grossi noted that “the explosion near the South Ukrainian nuclear power plant demonstrates too clearly the potential threats to other nuclear facilities in the country.”
The IAEA notes that experts continue to be concerned about the situation at the Zaporozhye NPP.
Grossi reiterated that “the ZNPP is located in a war zone, and its condition is far from safe. It is urgent to create a nuclear safety zone there.”
He also insists that “any military action that threatens nuclear security is unacceptable and must be stopped immediately.”
On the night of September 19, the Russian invaders launched a missile strike in the area of the South Ukrainian nuclear power plant. The Russian rocket exploded 300 meters from the reactors of the South nuclear power plant.
