Shoigu, Guterres discuss nuclear plant operation

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu spoke to United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, discussing the conditions of the safe operation of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported on Monday. Additionally, the two parties touched upon easing exports of Russian food and fertilizer.

In light of the escalating tensions in the region, the UN is prepared to support the trip of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) specialists to the nuclear power plant, UN Spokesman for Secretary-General Stephane Dujarric revealed during a press briefing earlier today. Meanwhile, Ukrainian forces have shelled the city nearby the power plant, with explosions being recorded around the nuclear plant as well.

Previously, Moscow pledged to ensure that IAEA experts could visit the station and give a straightforward assessment of the damaging actions carried out by the Ukrainian side.
