NATO has called on the United Nations to send inspectors to the Zaporizhzhia power plant, claiming the facility poses a serious threat to Ukraine and neighboring countries.

It is the key concern that we all should understand, Denys Monastyrskyy, Ukraine's interior minister, via BBC. According to officials, power to the plant could be cut off as Russia redirects electricity to Crimea, which it annexed in 2014.

Any military firepower directed at, or from, the facility would amount to playing with fire, with potentially catastrophic consequences, Rafael Grossi, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, via BBC.
