September 1, 2022 - UN nuclear experts set out from the city of Zaporizhya to visit a Russian-occupied nuclear power plant, even as both sides in the conflict reported fighting in the area, Reuters reports.
Russian-installed officials have suggested that the team from the UN nuclear watchdog would have only a day to inspect the plant, while the mission is preparing for longer.
“If we are able to establish a permanent presence, or a continued presence, then it's going to be prolonged. But this first segment is going to take a few days,” IAEA chief, Rafael Grossi said.
Meanwhile Ukrainian forces are continuing their counteroffensive in Kherson Oblast, supported by intensive long-range strikes against Russian command and logistics locations.
