Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the acceptance of the objects of the occupied Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) into federal ownership. It is published on the official Internet portal of legal information.
He also instructed the Cabinet to determine for the period up to 2028 the features of operation, issuance of licenses and other aspects of regulating the operation of the station.
On September 6, the IAEA published a report on the state of the plant after the completion of the inspection at the ZNPP. It states that all seven nuclear safety rules have been violated at the ZNPP and there is a risk of a "nuclear incident" if the shelling does not stop. Later in September, the IAEA Board of Governors adopted a resolution demanding that Russia end its occupation of the ZNPP in Ukraine and withdraw troops from its territory.
