UN Inspectors Reach Russian-Held Nuclear Plant in Ukraine

From a Wall Street Journal story by Isabel Coles headlined “UN Inspectors Reach Russian-Held Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Plant in Ukraine”:

ZAPORIZHZHIA, Ukraine—United Nations inspectors visited the Russian-controlled Zaporizhzhia nuclear-power plant on Thursday after crossing the front line between Ukrainian and Russian forces despite intense shelling in the area that the two sides blamed on each other.

The director general of the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, said late on Thursday that he was finishing his first visit to the plant and that the IAEA “is here to stay and will maintain a continued presence” at the plant. Ukraine’s nuclear-energy regulator, Energoatom, said five members of the team had remained.
