Russia and Ukraine traded accusations of responsibility for shelling on Thursday at an enormous Russian-occupied nuclear power complex on the Dnipro River in southern Ukraine, as global leaders expressed growing concern for the complex’s security and repeated calls for international experts to visit the facility.
The United Nations secretary general, António Guterres, said on Thursday that he was “gravely concerned” about increasing hostilities in and around the Zaporizhzhia nuclear complex, Europe’s largest, which Russian forces seized in March, soon after launching their full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February.

“The situation at the station is currently under control,” the statement from Energoatom said…
