Zaporizhzhia the focus of Grossi interview
The ongoing, tense situation surrounding the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine was the subject of a recent interview with International Atomic Energy Agency director general Rafael Mariano Grossi when he appeared on CBS's 60 Minutes program.
The Zaporizhzhia facility is in an area of Ukraine that became occupied by Russian forces in late February 2022. Though Ukrainian staff remain at the now mostly idle plant, artillery shells have repeatedly landed at and near the plant over the past several months, with Ukrainian officials—along with many Western media outlets—blaming Russia, while Russian officials and media blame Ukraine.
Action from the IAEA: Following months of negotiations with both sides, inspectors from the IAEA, led by Grossi, finally visited the site in late August and early September, and the agency has been monitoring the situation since then with an observation mission at the site. In the interview, which aired on November 20, Grossi did not attribute blame for the shelling to either side.

With stronger public support and new NetZero policies in place, nuclear technology is primed for a major resurgence both here and abroad. Now, the race is on to upgrade our existing nuclear plants for the long haul and bring a new generation of advanced reactors into commercial operation.
It won’t be easy: our domestic supply chains need strengthening, our regulatory systems must be more agile and responsive, we have acute workforce shortages in skilled professions, and our fuel cycle and waste management policies are way behind the curve.
But the American nuclear community has done it before, and we can do it again.
Join us this November as thought leaders from across the nuclear enterprise tackle the practical challenges of ushering in a new nuclear era in the U.S. and around the world.
Opening Plenary: Challenge Accepted
Over a quarter of our audience has decision-making and buying power (CNO, COO, VP and Senior level staff). These powerful decision-makers control huge budgets and attend the Winter Meeting with serious purchasing intent, looking for new technology solutions and practical innovations that best fit their operations’ needs.
Is your organization looking to bring on new talent with fresh ideas and energy? Thirty two percent of our audience are students and young members, just finishing college or looking for their first opportunity in the industry. Make your presence known to graduates from some of the top universities in the world.
