Ukraine: IAEA chief slams ‘complacency’ over stricken Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant

Amid the biggest reported missile attack on Ukraine in weeks, the UN’s atomic energy agency, IAEA, said on Thursday that Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant had to switch to backup generators once again, after losing all power.

This is the first time the site has lost all power since November 2022 – but the sixth time that all off-site power has been cut since the Russian invasion last February — IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi said, in a statement to agency directors.
