Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ukrainian officials have accused Russia of manipulating and distorting information shared with the IAEA. Ukrainian state-owned operator Energoatom said in a statement that Russian officials "are making every effort to prevent the IAEA mission from getting to know the real state of affairs. They spread manipulative and false information about this visit."

Russian defence minister Sergei Shoigu has accused Ukraine of "nuclear terrorism". Russian news agencies are reporting that defence minister Sergei Shoigu has said Ukraine was continuing to shell the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant (ZNPP).

Offering no evidence for the accusation, it quotes Vladimir Rogov saying "Ukrainian special services, on the orders of Zelenskiy, tried to introduce their  spies and saboteurs working under journalistic cover into the IAEA delegation to the ZNPP.

Ukraine's military said it carried out strikes against Russian positions in the region around the southern town of Enerhodar near a nuclear power plant where U.N. experts are working, Reuters reports.

The revelation by the armed forces' general staff was unusual, since the military rarely gives details of specific targets.

A team from the International Atomic Energy Agency is gathering data at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power station, on the edge of Russian-occupied Enerhodar.

"It has been confirmed that in the region around the towns of Kherson and Enerhodar, precise strikes by our armed forces destroyed three enemy artillery systems as well as a warehouse with ammunition and up to a company of soldiers," the general staff said in a Facebook post.
