The head of the UN Atomic Energy Agency, Raphael Grossi, today visited the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant in southeastern Ukraine, which has been occupied by Russian forces for months, Sky News reported.

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will review the situation at Europe's largest plant as part of efforts to reduce the risk of a major accident.

Fighting intensified again in the vicinity of the power plant, and Moscow and Kiev constantly accuse each other of shelling the site.

Grossi hopes to reach an agreement to protect the plant, describing the situation as "very dangerous" and unstable.

Since last year, the IAEA has stationed observers at the factory in Zaporizhia, reports Sky News.
