    Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant is out of control, says IAEA

    August 4, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      TRIESTE, Aug 4 (ANSA) - The director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), an agency linked to the United Nations, Rafael Grossi, said that the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine is "completely out of control."

      The structure has been under Russian military management since March of this year.

      "There is a list of principles and standards that should never occur at any nuclear plant. And there the situation is very fragile. Every nuclear safety principle has been violated in one way or another and we can no longer allow this to happen," Grossi said, warning that the case is "extremely serious."

      The situation at the Zaporizhzhia plant, which is the largest structure of its kind in Europe, has been the subject of IAEA concern for months. On June 30, the agency released a statement saying it had lost contact again with the site's remote safety and surveillance systems.

      In addition, it charged that technicians could make a visit for repairs and to assess the situation, something that has not occurred since the war in Ukraine began on February 24.

      The post Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant is out of control, says IAEA appeared first on ISTOÉ Independent.
