UN can facilitate IAEA visit to Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant if Russia, Ukraine agree

The United Nations (UN) has the logistics and security capacity to support a visit by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors to Ukraine's Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant if both Russia and Ukraine agree, UN spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric said on Monday. Dujarric was responding to an accusation by Russia that UN security had blocked a visit by IAEA inspectors to Europe's largest nuclear power plant, which Russia seized in March after invading Ukraine on Feb. 24.
