Ukraine shells Energodar, Zaporizhzhia not hit - Russia

Russian officials claimed that Ukrainian forces carried out strikes in Energodar, a town near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. According to a spokesman for the regional administration, Ukraine fired at least seven rounds of heavy artillery on the town. He added that the power plant was not affected and that radiation levels are normal.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said there are "no objective obstacles" preventing the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to send a mission to inspect Zaporizhzhia. He urged Russia to "immediately and unconditionally" allow IAEA representatives access to the plant and withdraw its troops from its territory.
