The Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, announced a possible increase in the risk of a nuclear accident at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, if hostilities intensified next spring, as well as the intense bombing of the plant.

“There is a lot of talk about bigger maneuvers and stronger fighting in early spring or late winter, which makes me think that any increase in bombing will definitely raise the possibility of a nuclear accident,” he told Politico.

Grossi reiterated “the need to establish a security zone around the Zaporozhye nuclear plant,” calling on European foreign ministers to “intervene and use their channels of communication with Kyiv and Moscow, to convey the message of the importance of establishing a security zone and preventing a nuclear accident.”

The Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant, located on the left bank of the Dnieper River near the town of Energodar, is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe in terms of the number of units and capacity, and the plant contains six power units with a capacity of 1 gigawatt each.

Since last March, the station has been under the protection of the Russian army, and the Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed that this step was justified in order to avoid the leakage of nuclear and radioactive materials, while the Ukrainian forces continue to bomb the city of Energodar regularly and the territory of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant adjacent to the city.
