After Russians took over Chernobyl, Ukraine loses all communications with the Nuclear Power Plant

On Thursday, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) stated that Ukraine has lost all connection with the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), a day after the Russian-controlled facility lost all external power supplies.

The news: Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi stated that the agency is aware of claims that electricity has been restored to the facility and that they are awaiting confirmation.

  • Previously, Ukraine authorities informed the IAEA that emergency diesel generators that supplied electricity to the Chernobyl NPP had lost communication.
  • This prevented the regulator from providing updated information to the IAEA on radiation monitoring, ventilation systems, and normal lighting at the site.
  • “If emergency power were lost, #Chornobyl workers would still be able to monitor the water level and temperature of the spent fuel pool,” the IAEA wrote on Twitter.

What’s going on: The IAEA has also reported that Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhya NPP, which is also under Russian administration, is unable to deliver the required replacement parts, equipment, and specialist staff to complete scheduled repairs.

  • The IAEA also stated that maintenance activities at Unit 1 had been cut to a bare minimum.

What are they saying: They’d do it in the face of deteriorating radiation safety conditions, and they’d be unable to follow operational radiation safety protocols.” the IAEA reported.

  • On March 3, Ukraine alerted the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that Russian forces had taken control of the country’s Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant.
  • The rocket impacted a training building near one of the plant’s reactor units, triggering a localized fire that was later extinguished, according to Ukrainian counterparts.
