More international support to help complete confinement structure for nuclear reactor
The U.S. has allocated additional USD 10 million to help Ukraine deal with the aftermath of Chornobyl Nuclear Plant 1986 accident. That's according to a statement by U.S. State Department Spokesperson John Kirby.
"The United States marks this anniversary with a pledge of an additional USD 10 million to help ensure the safety of future generations who live in the affected area," the statement reads.
The funds will add to the USD 400 million allocated earlier for restoration of ecological safety of the area, first of all for the completion of a new confinement structure for the destroyed nuclear reactor.
