UN demands access to Ukraine nuclear plant

August 8, 2022 - UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for international inspectors to be given access to Ukraine’s Zaporizhia nuclear power plant following the second attack in consecutive days.

Russian forces captured the plant in Ukraine's southeast in early March, shortly after Moscow's Feb. 24 invasion of its neighbour, but it is still run by Ukrainian technicians, according to Reuters.

Ukraine blamed Russia for renewed shelling in the area of the plant on Saturday that had damaged three radiation sensors and injured a worker. It was the second reported hit on the plant in as many days, following damage to a power line, Reuters said.
