Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Olha Stefanishyna signed an Agreement on the financing of the Annual Action Program for 2020 on Cooperation in Nuclear Safety between the Government of Ukraine and the European Commission.


The total cost of the program is EUR 6.5 million, of which the EU will provide EUR 5 million, while Ukraine's contribution – EUR 1.5 million. Funding will be used to develop recommendations on possible options and technological solutions for the future management of the Pidlisny radioactive waste disposal site, as well as the management of waste contained therein. Funding will also help improve the system of radiation monitoring of water resources in the exclusion zone.

With the support of the EU, we are launching a project that will help improve the safe management of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel in Ukraine, as well as better the environmental rehabilitation of former nuclear facilities.
