Russian leader Vladimir Putin has said UN officials will be granted permission to visit and inspect the Zaporizhzhia nuclear complex.

The Kremlin made the announcement after a call between Mr Putin and French President Emmanuel Macron.

It came after U.N chief Antonio Guterres told newsmen he is “concerned” about the situation at the plant.

He said military activity around Zaporizhzhia must end and urged Moscow to grant access to inspectors.

The site has been under Russian occupation since early March but Ukrainian technicians still operate it under Russian direction.

In a readout following the call between the French and Russian leaders, the Kremlin said Mr Putin had agreed to provide UN investigators with “the necessary assistance” to access the site.
