MOSCOW, June 1 (Reuters) - The head of Russia's state nuclear company Rosatom said on Thursday that he appreciates the work of the International Atomic Energy Agency Chief Rafael Grossi to protect the Zaporizhzhia plant, TASS reported.

Interfax quoted the Rosatom boss as saying that Russia was following the principles of Grossi's safety plan for the Zaporizhzhia plant, which has been under Russian control since March 2022, but which remains near the frontline in Ukraine. (Reporting by Reuters; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
