No radiation concerns in Poland, atomic energy agency says


There are no radiation threats to Poland caused by a Russian attack on the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine, the National Atomic Energy Agency (PAA) has reported.

Ukraine's state nuclear company Enerhoatom said on Saturday that in the last 24-hours Russian troops had repeatedly shelled the grounds of the Russian-held Zaporizhzhia plant in southern Ukraine, the biggest nuclear power plant in Europe.

"The damage is currently being assessed," Enerhoatom wrote in a statement on Telegram.

Later on Saturday, PAA wrote on Twitter that "there is no risk to human health and life or to the environment on the territory of the Republic of Poland... radiation levels have remained normal in the country."
