Two inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will stay at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant on a permanent basis, Russia’s ambassador to international institutions in Vienna told the RIA Novosti news agency on Friday.

An IAEA mission is currently at the plant, Europe’s largest nuclear facility which has been under the control of Russian forces since March.

The mission arrived at the plant on Thursday to inspect operations and assess any damage.

Both Kyiv and Moscow have accused each other of attacking the facility. Reuters was unable to verify battlefield reports.

Earlier on Friday, Ukraine’s state nuclear company Energoatom said it would be “difficult” for the UN nuclear watchdog to make an impartial assessment of the situation at the plant due to Russian interference.
