New York – The cables that supply electricity to one of the six reactors of the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant were damaged by shelling today. The unit had to run temporarily on emergency diesel generators until external power was restored. According to Reuters, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Rafael Grossi said this today.

The shelling did not affect the five other reactors of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, which is occupied by the Russian invasion forces. The power plant was reconnected to the Ukrainian grid last week after 14 days. It needs energy to cool the reactors and keep them running.

Grossi expressed hope that he would soon go to Ukraine and Russia to push for an agreement to create a nuclear safety zone. He told reporters today at the UN headquarters in New York that he is now entering the “real” phase of negotiations with both countries and wants to conclude an agreement as soon as possible.
