Ukraine war: UN team leaves for Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant – BBC News

An inspection team from the UN nuclear watchdog is on its way to Ukraine’s embattled Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, the organisation’s head has said.

Rafael Grossi, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said the team was expected to arrive at the plant later this week.

“We must protect the safety and security of Ukraine’s and Europe’s biggest nuclear facility,” he tweeted.

The nuclear plant has been occupied by invading Russian troops since March.
