Ukraine has 15 operable nuclear reactors at four nuclear power plants (NPP), which together generate about half of its electricity. In 2022 all four NPPs, as well as other nuclear installations, were subject to military attacks, including shelling and missile strikes, while two NPPs were occupied by Russian military forces.1 This situation presented extraordinary nuclear safety, security and safeguards challenges for the facilities’ personnel, the Ukrainian authorities and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).2
