Kazakhstan’s national atomic company Kazatomprom has reported a slight year-on-year increase in its first quarter uranium production. Production for the quarter was 5077 tU (100% basis), up from 4744 tU for the same period in 2023, a year-on-year increase of 7%. However, Kazatomprom emphasised that its production guidance for 2024 of 21,000-22,500 tU (100% basis) remains unchanged while noting that "sanctions pressure due to the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and limited access to some key materials are not known". As a result, “annual production volumes may differ from internal expectations".

Experts of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have continued to hear military activity in the region of the Zaporizhia NPP (ZNPP) but say there have been no reports of new drone attacks on the site over the past week. “We are not aware of any drone attacks since the reported incident one week ago, which is encouraging. However, we know from experience that the situation can take a sudden turn for the worse from one minute to the next. The situation remains highly unpredictable,” IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi said.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in its latest update on the Zaporizhia NPP (ZNPP) said it was informed about a further attempted drone attack on the plant’s training centre, which caused no damage or casualties. It was the third reported attack targeting the training facility recently, following two such incidents the previous week. ZNPP told the IAEA team stationed at the site that the drone had been “neutralised”, without giving further details. The IAEA team heard an explosion at the same time that ZNPP subsequently reported the attempted drone attack took place. The team was denied access to the training centre just outside the ZNPP site perimeter to assess the incident, with the plant citing potential security risks.

Rosatom, Zaporizhia NPP, Russian media and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have all reported drone strikes against the Zaporizhia NPP (ZNPP). Drone strikes hit the ZNPP site on 7 April “in a serious incident that endangered nuclear safety and security, IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi said. For the first time since November 2022, the plant was directly targeted in military action that also represents a clear violation of the five basic principles for protecting the facility established by Grossi at the United Nations Security Council in May 2023, IAEA noted.
