MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia said on Thursday it was concerned about a possible "provocation" from Ukraine at the Zaporizhzia nuclear power plant ahead of a visit by the United Nations nuclear watchdog.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia was ready to cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to facilitate its mission to the plant, which has been under the control of Russian forces since March.
