Update 112 - IAEA Director General Statement on Situation in Ukraine

in consultations with the relevant authorities following reports today that Russia plans to supervise operations of Ukraine's Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP)
Separately today, IAEA experts at the site learnt that the ZNPP plans to restart one of its six reactors which are currently all in cold shutdown. Senior Ukrainian operating staff informed IAEA experts present at the ZNPP that preparations are under way to start unit 5 at reduced power to produce steam and heat for the needs of the plant. It will take some time to complete all preparations, including those related to necessary systems and equipment, before reactor operations can resume.
The IAEA team also reported that there had been shelling yesterday in an industrial area located between the ZNPP and the town of Ener*odar, but the plant site itself was not affected.

"The enemy has focused the shelling on our [gas-fired] power plant to derail our preparations for the winter season, and to demonstrate that the authorities are not capable of heating the city," [RF Zaporizh* Gov Yevgeny] Balitsky told Russian television on Wednesday.

He believes Kiev intends to "destroy the infrastructure and make [Energodar] unlivable." The Ukrainian government wants to regain control over the region, but does not want the people living in it to remain, he insisted. [—RT.05.10.22]

We will remind you that on the night of September 11, the last working power unit No. 6 at the Zaporizh* NPP, which had been supplying the plant's own needs until now, was stopped. Therefore, all units of the nuclear power plant were transferred to the safest state - cold shutdown. Currently, the electricity required for cooling the reactor and other important safety functions at the ZNPP comes from the outside to the plant from the [closest gas-fueled plant] power system of Ukraine in Ener*odar.

Ukrainian specialists continue to work at the station, despite the presence of Rosatom representatives and Russian occupiers. IAEA representatives are also monitoring the situation at the ZNPP.
