Europas größtes AKW ist "außer Kontrolle"

By Phil Bainbridge

March 4, 2022 - Die IAEA hat um Zutritt zu der Saporischschja Anlage ersucht – derzeit unter russischer Kontrolle, wird aber von ukrainischen Technikern betrieben – damit Experten der IAEA den Komplex stabilisieren können und ein Atomunfall vermieden wird.

Observers have been unable to visit the site since it was captured by Russian forces in March and connection with surveillance systems is frequently lost. Supply chains have been disrupted by the war, restricting the availability of vital equipment and spare parts, and the physical integrity of the structures could have been compromised by active fighting in the area and even the possibility of munitions being stored on site.

There are four major nuclear plants in Ukraine, plus the now-retired Chernobyl.
