Ukraine is asking the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to provide it with the equipment needed to maintain reliable and safe operations at its nuclear power plant.

The Ukrainian authorities have sent a letter to the IAEA with a list of required items, including measuring instruments, radiation protection equipment, electrical power systems, and diesel generators.

The IAEA announced the information, according to the BBC.

Last month, the IAEA delivered some equipment to Ukraine. A new shipment is expected to arrive in Ukraine next week when IAEA chief Rafael Grossi goes on an inspection at the decommissioned Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

Ukraine’s letter to the IAEA states that 7 of the 15 reactors located in Ukraine, spread over four power plants, are currently operational. The other eight are closed down.
