The IAEA experts that were at the Zaporizhzhia NPP also told about Russian shelling.

“IAEA experts at the ZNPP reported to Agency headquarters that more than a dozen blasts were heard within a short period of time in the morning local time. The IAEA team could also see some of the explosions from their windows,” said Rafael Grossi.

It is clarified that IAEA experts are in close contact with the station’s management and will continue to assess the situation and report on it.

“The news from our team yesterday and this morning is extremely disturbing. Explosions occurred at the site of this major nuclear power plant, which is completely unacceptable. Whoever is behind this, it must stop immediately. As I have said many times before, you’re playing with fire!” The IAEA Director General Grossi noted.
