In Ukraine, the nuclear power plant at Zaporizhzhia, now occupied by Russian forces has been fully shut down to prevent disaster as the area has come under repeated shelling.
The state agency in charge of the plant, Energoatom, announced Sunday that it has disconnected the sixth unit of the plant from the power grid.
It said the plant is now in the state of cold shutdown.
The Ukrainian government on Wednesday called on residents of Russian-occupied areas around the plant to evacuate for their own safety.
The decision followed a warning from the IAEA that shelling of Europe’s biggest nuclear power plant could lead to an unlimited release of radioactive materials.
