As a precautionary measure, Ukrainian authorities are currently distributing iodine tablets to residents living near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear reactor, which was hit by a Russian shelling that caused a large fire at the site last night.

The UN’s nuclear watchdog says the strike did not damage operations at the site.
