Ukraine currently has four nuclear power facilities in operation, according to the IAEA.
Concerned about Russia’s incursion into Ukraine, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has urged to Russia to avoid any action that may jeopardize the safety of its nuclear facilities.
Following a full-scale military offensive against Ukraine, Russia has appealed. In a statement, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) stated that it is carefully watching the current situation in Ukraine to guarantee the safety of nuclear power plants and other nuclear-related infrastructure. Ukraine’s nuclear regulatory agency has said that the nuclear power facilities in operation are operating safely.
Additionally, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said that “unidentified armed troops” had seized all of the Chernobyl NPP facilities. The regulator went on to say that no harm had been done to the facilities and that no one had been injured.
Rafael Mariano Grossi, the IAEA’s director general, said: “It is critical that the safe and secure operations of nuclear facilities in that zone be unaffected or interrupted in any manner.
A breach of the principles of the United Nations Charter, international law, and the Statute of the Agency is a violation of any armed assault or threat against nuclear facilities for peaceful purposes.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has said that it is in “constant touch” with Ukraine. There are now four nuclear power facilities in Ukraine that are in full operation.
Podolyak, a Ukrainian government adviser, said last week that the Chernobyl nuclear power facility had been overrun by Russian soldiers. The Russian Defense Ministry subsequently verified this. Founded in 1945, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is a non-governmental organization dedicated to the advancement of nuclear research and technology, as well as the peaceful use of nuclear energy worldwide. A long-term operating safety assessment of the Ascó nuclear power plant in Spain, which was completed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission last year, has been completed.
