The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, told the Security Council that this is a serious time.

He urged the international community to react immediately to drive away the occupiers from Zaporizhzhya.

Ukraine’s nuclear agency Energoatom later said there had been fresh Russian shelling near one of the plant’s six reactors, causing widespread smoke and damaging several radiation sensors. At the same time, Vladimir Rogov, a member of the regional administration established in Moscow, said that Ukrainian troops had once again attacked the plant.
What is the guarantee of nuclear safety?
The Ukrainian Nuclear Power Plant is under the control of Russian troops. Ukraine has accused Moscow of harboring hundreds of soldiers and stockpiling weapons there. All members of the UN Security Council supported the call for an immediate IAEA mission to Ukraine, but no consensus was reached on who to blame for the attacks. America has also said that it cannot wait any longer. Only the complete withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine will keep the nuclear plant safe.
