The United Nations Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has lost contact with the systems that allow the agency to monitor the nuclear power plant in Zaporizhia, Ukraine.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) lost contact with the plant on Wednesday, the day after the IAEA lost contact with the decommissioned Chernobyl nuclear power plant, the BBC reports.

Both facilities are under the control of Russian forces but are still operated by Ukrainian employees.

IAEA leader Rafael Grossi says he is “concerned about the sudden halt in data transmission” from the two facilities.

Europe’s largest nuclear power plant in Zaporizhia was captured by Russian forces last week.
