Medvedchuk: Ukraine trying to turn into a dump for nuclear waste

Медведчук: Украину пытаются превратить в свалку ядерного мусора

In his opinion, it is necessary to disclose details of the contract with Holteс International.

The construction of a repository for nuclear waste will transform Ukraine into a dump for nuclear waste. This convinced the leader of the public movement Ukrainian choice – the Right of the people Viktor Medvedchuk.

He reminded that in 2005 Ukraine signed a contract with the American Holteс International concern regarding the construction in the Chernobyl zone storage for spent nuclear fuel, but before the project, it never came. “And June 7 this year, the government, without discussion, decided to adopt the project of the construction of a warehouse”, – said Medvedchuk.

In his opinion, it is necessary to disclose details of the contract with Holteс International – according to rumors, in 2014 it was rewritten, and not in favor of Ukraine. Medvedchuk also believes that there is no guarantee that in the future, in 10-15 years, this store in Ukraine will not begin to take waste from other countries.

Recall the Chernobyl NPP and U.S. company Holtec International in the third quarter of 2018 plans to begin the commissioning of the new dry storage for spent nuclear fuel (ISF-2). It from the existing storage facility (ISF-1) will be unloaded fuel of Chernobyl NPP.
