On Tuesday, Ukrainian troops fired a total of at least 20 large-caliber projectiles along the coastline of Energodar. The city administration believes that in this way the Kiev regime is trying to disrupt the IAEA mission at the ZNPP.

As Mikhail Ulyanov , Russia’s Permanent Representative to the International Organizations in Vienna, specified , it includes about a dozen employees of the IAEA secretariat who deal with the issues of safeguards and nuclear safety. As a diplomatic source told RIA Novosti, the arrival of the mission to the Zaporozhye NPP is expected on Wednesday.
During the special operation, the Russian military took control of the Azov part of the Zaporozhye Oblast and the entire Kherson Oblast, occupying large cities such as Kherson, Melitopol and Berdyansk , and cutting off Ukraine from the Sea of Azov. New administrations have been formed in the regions, Russian TV channels and radio stations are broadcasting, trade and transport links with Crimea are being restored. The regions have announced plans to become part of Russia.
Zaporozhye NPP is located on the left bank of the Dnieper. It is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe in terms of the number of units and installed capacity. Since March, it has been under the protection of the Russian military. According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, this is necessary to prevent the leakage of nuclear and radioactive materials. The Ukrainian military continues to regularly shell Energodar, the surrounding villages and the territory of the station adjacent to the city.
