Warning over nuclear safety as conflict intensifies near Ukrainian power station

The United Nations organization responsible for monitoring nuclear activity has raised concerns that the potential conflict occurring near the biggest nuclear power plant in Europe could put nuclear safety at risk.

Experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are sent to the Zaporizhzhia power plant in Ukraine. The power plant is located in an area controlled by Russia.

There has been an increase in fighting near the power plant, as Ukraine’s forces fight back.

The director of the IAEA, Rafael Mariano Grossi, said that the staff at the plant had been reduced to the lowest number of people because they were worried about more fighting happening in the area.

He said: ‘I am very worried about the possible dangers that the plant could face during this time of increased military tension in the area.

No matter what happens in a place with fighting, everyone would suffer if there is a nuclear accident. I ask everyone to take all the necessary steps to prevent it from happening.

The Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant is one of the largest nuclear plants globally. There are worries that the ongoing fighting could lead to a radiation leak from the facility.

The plant’s six reactors have been turned off for many months, but the plant still requires energy and skilled workers to ensure that the cooling systems and other safety measures keep working properly.

At the beginning of the year, people got worried when bombs were discovered at the factory. The factory has been owned by Russia since the war began.
