Ukraine’s Ministry of Ecology hopes that by April 26, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko will be able to sign a decree on the establishment of Chornobyl reserve, - said Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine, Anna Vronska.
"It is not about parliament, actually the creation of the reserve started long ago and we are on the final stage. The decree on the establishment of the reserve should be signed by the president. The documents are in Presidential Administration, and we hope that by April 26, when we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Chornobyl tragedy, we’ll have time to formalize and complete all bureaucratic procedures for this decree to be signed”, - said Anna Vronska.
