The delegation from the International Atomic Energy Agency has arrived to the nuclear power station in Zaporizhzhia.
that is under Russian control after a several-hour delay brought on by shelling in the area of Enerhodar, where the plant is situated.
Although the team was aware of "enhanced military activity in the region," IAEA leader Rafael Grossi said.
the mission was adamant about moving forward with its intention to visit the facility and speak with staff there.
The fifth reactor at the plant has been shut down as a result of the shelling, according to earlier statements from the nation's state nuclear power business.
The country's armed forces said in an operational briefing on Thursday morning.
that Russian forces are focusing their efforts on restoring supply lines and maintaining a hold on occupied regions in Ukraine.
The remarks coincide with a renewed effort by Kyiv to retake Russian-occupied territory, especially in the country's south near the city of Kherson.
