Russia to Allow Inspectors at Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Plant

Written by on August 26, 2022

Russian leader Vladimir Putin has said UN Officials will be granted permission to visit and inspect the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Complex.

The announcement was made after a call between Mr. Putin and French President Emmanuel MACRON.

In a statement following the call between the French and Russian leaders, Mr Putin agreed to provide U.N investigators with “the necessary assistance” to access the Zaporizhzhia nuclear site.

It came as claims of fighting near the plant continued, with four civilians reportedly injured by Russian shelling.

However, the U.S has pledged recently to send more arms and ammunitions to assist in Ukraine’s war effort.

Meanwhile, the plant has been under Russian occupation since early March but Ukrainian technicians still operate it under Russian direction.
