IAEA sends monitoring missions to Ukraine’s nuclear power plants

“In the near future, these missions will be deployed at all nuclear power plants,” Oleg Korikov, acting chairman of the State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate of Ukraine, said Tuesday.

The main purpose of the missions is to monitor the state of nuclear and radiation safety in the nuclear facilities during the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, Korikov said.

In particular, IAEA staff will examine the impact of missile strikes on Ukraine on nuclear power plants, he noted.

At present, there are five nuclear power plants in Ukraine, four of which are in operation. The Chernobyl nuclear power plant, which witnessed a nuclear disaster on April 26, 1988, was shut down completely on December 15, 2000, Xinhua news agency reported.

In August 2022, the IAEA sent its monitoring mission to the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant in southern Ukraine, which has been under the control of Russian forces since March.
