The director of the United Nations’ nuclear inspector visited on Wednesday the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine, which is now under Russian control.

Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency Rafael Grossi has arrived at Europe’s largest nuclear power station to inspect the situation, according to an IAEA official.

The spokesperson’s response: “Now in the plant.”

Moscow and Kyiv have swapped claims over the last year that the other had bombarded the site of the power facility. Grossi has been attempting to persuade Ukraine and Russia to agree on safety measures to protect the facility.

He said during a Tuesday interview in the Ukrainian city of Dnipro that he was still working on a solution to secure the nuclear site and was adjusting the designs in an attempt to find a compromise.

Grossi met with President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Monday and warned that the plant was “very dangerous” and “very unstable.”

Since last year, when Grossi visited the Zaporizhzhia plant and fears of a nuclear catastrophe were increasing, the IAEA has had its own monitors at the facility.
