In a report published after the inspection of the power plant, the IAEA said there is an “urgent need for interim measures” to prevent a nuclear accident after physical damage was caused to the station.

The IAEA added the damage was caused “by military activity”, and said they observed damage around the plant including on buildings containing nuclear fuel and a waste storage facility.

The IAEA added a Safety and Security Protection Zone “must be established” around Zaporizhzhia, and said they are ready to begin consultations for the zone “immediately”.
