All six of its reactors are in a cold shutdown state, but the plant requires external power to cool its reactors and avoid the risk of meltdown.

The IAEA says the situation at the Russian military-held plant has improved but remains uncertain.

A team of nuclear experts from the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) visited Zaporizhia, Europe’s largest nuclear plant, earlier in the month.

The visit was followed by increasing calls from Ukraine and the international community for a security inspection following reports of shelling.

Both Russia and Ukraine blamed each other for the shelling of the facility in southeastern Ukraine.

Following the IAEA’s first inspection, the agency announced that it would maintain a permanent presence to monitor the situation.

Many of them are said to be civilians, women and children.

Ukraine says it believes war crimes have been committed.

“In the 21st century, such attacks against the civilian population are unimaginable and despicable,” said Czech Foreign Minister Jan Lipavski.
