<p>On April 3 in the afternoon, the team of the International Atomic Energy Agency in the territory of the temporarily occupied Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, more than 100 shots were heard during the day, fired by the Russian military. </p>
<p>This was stated by IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi, the agency said in a statement. </p>
<p>“This is the last one. “military activity at the plant illustrates an ongoing unstable situation that poses significant nuclear safety and security challenges to this major nuclear facility,” Grossi said.</p>
<p>The IAEA is also aware that a training base for drone operators has been deployed near the 6th power unit and training center of Zaporizhzhya NPP. Almost every day, data is received about military activities at different distances from the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant.</p>
<p>The IAEA Support and Assistance Mission in Zaporozhye (ISAMZ) team this week continued discussions on the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant repair work planned for 2024.</p > < >In addition, ZNPP specialists told the IAEA that emergency exercises will take place in mid-May based on a scenario related to the cooling systems at the site, and representatives of the aggressor country will allow them to observe the process. </p>

<li>Units of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense received evidence of the Russians using kamikaze drones over the nuclear reactors of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant seized by Russia.</li>
<li>On April 7, the IAEA reported that a drone exploded on the territory of the Zaporizhia NPP. Subsequently, the Main Intelligence Directorate reported that after the explosion of the drone, no significant damage that could threaten nuclear safety was recorded. Intelligence also noted that Ukraine is not involved in any armed provocations on the territory of the occupied nuclear power plant.</li>
<li>On April 14, the General Staff warned that the occupiers were preparing a new provocation at the Zaporizhia NPP – under a false flag. It was also reported that Russia wants to restart the Zaporizhia NPP, which could pose a threat to nuclear safety. The occupiers are pursuing a symbolic goal, trying to “celebrate” the 40th anniversary of the connection of the Zaporizhzhya NPP to the power grid of the Soviet Union (November 9, 1984, – ed.) and thus “normalize” the seizure of the station.</li>
<li>All reactors of the station are in a state. “cold shutdown.”</li>
<li>On April 26, the International Atomic Energy Agency released another report on the situation at the plant. The IAEA has not recorded any new provocations at the Zaporizhia NPP, but “the situation remains unpredictable.” In addition, it was reported that the delegation constantly hears explosions associated with the operation of artillery at different distances from the Zaporizhia NPP.</li>
