Ukraine and Russia have accused each other of risking nuclear disaster by shelling Europe's largest nuclear power plant, occupied by Russian forces.

In a statement, Russia’s UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the world is being pushed to the brink of nuclear catastrophe.

He said IAEA officials could visit the site as soon as this month.

On the other hand, Ukraine’s General Staff said Russia is trying to expand territory on behalf of separatist proxies.

Meanwhile, Western countries have urged Moscow to withdraw its troops from the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.
