Situation at Zaporizhzhya NPP remains grave – Petro Kotin

President of SE "NNEGC "Energoatom" Petro Kotin said that the situation at the temporarily occupied ZNPP has not improved recently.

"In fact, the russian occupationists continue to use it as their military base. We regularly receive reports that they mine our power plant," Energoatom CEO said. Petro Kotin also noted that currently the radiation status at the ZNPP site is monitored via radiation monitoring sensors located 5 km away from the power plant, on the right bank of the Dnipro.

Furthermore, IAEA inspectors are present at the ZNPP, and their information helps to understand what is happening at the nuclear facility. However, the occupationists do not give access to the Agency representatives to all areas that need to be inspected.

"Despite the degradation of the equipment, we are very much looking forward to the moment when we will be able to regain control over the power plant in order to restore its full operation," Petro Kotin stated.
