    On Friday, Russian troops shelled the Zaporizhzhia plant, the biggest nuclear power plant in Europe. As reported by the Ukrainian company Enerhoatom, the shelling damaged the nitrogen-oxygen station, raising the possibility of a hydrogen leak and the release of radioactive material into the atmosphere.

    International Atomic Energy Agency chief Rafael Mariano Grossi warned on Saturday that the latest attack "underlines the very real risk of a nuclear disaster".

    But on Monday, the PAA said that it is analysing the national radiation monitoring system data and "has not noted any alarming indications on the measuring equipment."

    "Currently, there is no risk to human health and life or to the environment in the territory of the Republic of Poland," the agency wrote on Twitter on Monday morning. (PAP)
