Investing in the Nuclear Safety of Ukraine

Norway and the UK will contribute €5 mln to the International Chornobyl Cooperation Account

On April 26, 2023, it was 37 years since, due to Russian negligence, a reactor at the Chornobyl nuclear power plant exploded and created a catastrophe, neither before nor after which there were no analogues in the world. Today in the world, there are no methods and technologies that could completely eliminate the consequences of that tragedy. Therefore, a number of countries and international organisations have created an assembly specialising in monitoring the problem, working with the Chornobyl Shelter Fund and joint actions depending on current requests.

At the next meeting of the Assembly of Contributors to the International Cooperation Account, Norway and the United Kingdom announced their intention to contribute about €5 million to the International Chornobyl Cooperation Account.

Also, the European Commission, the International Atomic Energy Agency, Belgium, Norway, Germany, the United States of America, and France agreed to facilitate the signing of the Ukraine-EBRD agreement to restore security in the Chornobyl zone and the infrastructure responsible for the storage of radioactive waste.
