ФРГ выделит Киеву 19 млн евро для ликвидации последствий Чернобыля

Berlin has already provided Ukraine 120 million euros for liquidation of consequences of the Chernobyl accident.

The Minister of environmental protection, construction and reactor safety of Germany Barbara Hendricks (Barbara Hendricks) announced the allocation of Ukraine additional financial assistance to overcome the consequences of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.


“We have already invested around 120 million euros. In addition, in the coming years we are investing 19 million euros in the project,” said Hendricks in an interview with the newspaper Nordwest-Zeitung, published on Friday, April 22. “If we can cover the unit with a new dome from a nuclear reactor will not come a more immediate danger,” the Minister added.

Hendrix also criticized the use of nuclear energy. It is, in her words, “a dead-end technology high end”, that also illustrate the debate on financing of abandoning the use of nuclear energy.

In March 2016 Hendricks visited the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, where he inquired about the progress of work on the construction of a new sarcophagus. During her visit, Ukrainian officials said they were not going to abandon nuclear energy.
