“Mines along the perimeter of the Zaporizhia NPP, in the buffer zone between the internal and external fences of the facility, which were previously identified by the IAEA team and were removed in November 2023, are now back in place. This is a restricted area, inaccessible to plant workers. Director General Grossi repeated that the presence of mines does not comply with IAEA safety standards,” the message says.

IAEA experts also reported that the Zaporizhia NPP was again losing its backup source supply of reactor facilities for eight hours this week.
IAEA experts gained access to the reactor hall of Unit 6 earlier this week, but are still seeking access to other reactor halls, as well as parts of all six turbine halls, which they have not yet been able to visit.
It was previously reported that the occupiers were not allowing experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) into some of the halls at the Zaporozhye NPP. For the first time, they were not allowed into the reactor hall of the power unit, which was in a cold shutdown.
On the night of December 1, a complete blackout took place at the Zaporozhye NPP. Therefore, Zaporizhia NPP switched to powering its own needs from diesel generators. There was a threat to nuclear safety.
- Also, experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency located at the Zaporozhye NPP claim that the Russian army is using the Zaporozhye NPP as a firing position for deploying MLRS and shelling Ukrainian territories.
