Ukraine will receive EUR 5 million from the European Union for improving nuclear safety.

The press service of Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Olha Stefanishyna announced this in a statement, the Ukrainian News Agency reports.

The Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic integration has signed an agreement on financing the 2020 Annual Action Program on Nuclear Safety Cooperation between the Ukrainian government and the European Commission.

The total cost of the program is EUR 6.5 million, of which the EU will provide EUR 5 million and Ukraine will contribute EUR 1.5 million.

The money will be spent on the drafting of recommendations on possible options and technological solutions for the future management of the Podlesny radioactive waste disposal facility and the management of the waste therein.

The funds will also be used to improve the system for radiation monitoring of water resources in the Chornobyl exclusion zone.

According to the statement, Stefanishyna also signed a supplementary agreement on amendment of the agreement on financing the 2019 Technical Cooperation Program.

The supplementary agreement provides for the reallocation of funds to support the development of government agencies’ capacity to implement the association agreement’s provisions on transportation.
