Europa’s grootste kerncentrale "niet onder controle"

By Phil Bainbridge

March 4, 2022 - The IAEA has appealed for access to the Zaporizhia plant – now under
Russian control but operated by Ukrainian technicians – to allow experts to stabilize the complex and avoid a nuclear accident

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.
