  • Rafael Grossi, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), appealed for access to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant, Europe’s largest.
  • It was captured by Russian forces early in the conflict; they have since been accused by Ukraine and the US of using it as a base from which to launch attacks.
  • The Switzerland-based commodities trading and mining giant Glencore reported a net profit of $12.1 billion (€11.9 billion) in the first six months of 2022, a ninefold increase in profits as commodities prices surged following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
