The Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Plant in Ukraine will receive a visit from United Nations’ Nuclear Inspectors today. The goal of the inspection is to prevent any form of a nuclear accident and an attempt to stabilize the situation surrounding the nuclear plant due to recent shelling.
Inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency said that the trip would take a few days as they arrived in Zaporizhzhia.
"The mission will take a few days. If we are able to establish a permanent presence or a continued presence, then it’s going to be prolonged. But this first segment is going to take a few days.
We have a very important task there to perform - to assess the real situation there, to help stabilize the situation as much as we can.”
Rafael Grossi, the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said.
Europe’s largest power plant was captured by the Russians earlier this year. Russian militants have been at the plant ever since the capture and Ukrainian workers have worked to continue maintaining the facility. Both near and away from the nuclear plant, Ukraine and Russia have traded accusations of shelling.
