Australia and IAEA Take Care of Ukraine’s Radiation Safety 

Australia, through the IAEA, donated radiation protection equipment, dosimeters and radiation pollution monitors to Ukraine

On July 14, Rafael Grossi, director general of the IAEA, announced the purchase of a batch of equipment and radiation protection equipment from France. At the same time, Australia donated the same equipment and tools free of charge: about 160 dosimeters, protective equipment, and means for monitoring radiation pollution.

"This is a significant step in our joint assistance to Ukraine in order to reduce the risk of a nuclear incident or a radiological emergency," Rafael Grossi.

Today the IAEA includes 12 countries, including Australia and France. The organization helps Ukraine throughout the war, as the invaders regularly seize nuclear plants and blackmail Europe. We remind you that the invaders spent almost a month in Chornobyl, and left there only after the first cases of radiation sickness. For almost 4 months, employees of the Zaporizhzhia NPP have been held hostage.

At the beginning of spring, the EU countries requested assistance and protection for Ukraine and its nuclear power plants from the International Atomic Energy Agency, as well as to organize urgent measures in the event of a nuclear catastrophe provoked by ignorant or deliberate sabotage by the occupier.
