IAEA head to visit Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant this week

Grossi wants a security zone built around Europe’s biggest nuclear power plant with six reactors. It has been repeatedly shelled over the past few months.

This will be his second trip. He visited there last September and established an permanent presence of IAEA experts.

The facility was occupied by Russian troops early in the invasion of Ukraine. It remains close to the front line. Both sides are responsible for the shelling.

Grossi stated that “the situation at Zaporizhzhia’s nuclear power plant remains precarious” and added that he wanted to “evaluate first-hand the serious nuclear safety and security situation at this facility”.


He appealed earlier this month for the protection zone to be established around the plant, saying that he was shocked by the complacency around the issue.

It was responsible for about 20% of Ukraine’s power generation before the invasion. However, it hasn’t produced electricity since September, when one of six reactors was shut down.
