Fighting in the Ukrainian city of Zaporizhzhia caused power plant workers to prepare for the possibility of a nuclear disaster.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and U.N. head Antonio Guterres agreed Thursday on the terms of a trip by the International Atomic Energy Agency to the embattled Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, the presidential website said.

However, the plant has been under Russian control since early in the war, and it’s not certain the Kremlin will accede to the visit. A Russian Foreign Ministry official rejected the notion of withdrawing troops, saying it would leave the plant “vulnerable.”

The warring sides have been accusing each other of risking a nuclear calamity by shelling in the vicinity of the plant and, on Thursday, of plotting to attack the site and then blame the other party. Russian Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov said his country may cease operations of the plant “if the situation with Ukrainian shelling continues to develop negatively.”
