Politico.eu.com | Ukrainian nuclear plant may shut down amid renewed shelling, says [IAEA], 9 Sep
The city of Ener*odar, where most of the facility's staff and families live, is experiencing a complete power blackout, with "no running water, no power, no sewage," Rafael Mariano Grossi, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said. The situation could have a serious impact "on the availability of essential staff on site to continue to safely and securely operate the nuclear power plant," he warned.

The operator of the Zaporizh* plant [Enerhoatom] "is considering shutting down the only remaining operating reactor," as it no longer has "confidence in the restoration of offsite power," the agency said in a written statement.

Kirby: "We believe that the safest outcome would be a controlled shutdown of the Zaporizh* nuclear power plant reactors"
