Germany allocates €19 million to deal with aftermath of Chornobyl disaster
Berlin has already provided Ukraine with €120 million to deal with consequences of the nuclear disaster
Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety of Germany Barbara Hendricks announced more financial aid for Ukraine in the amount of €19 million to deal with the aftermath of Chornobyl nuclear disaster. The Minister informed about it in an interview to Nordwest-Zeitung.
“We’ve already invested around €120 million and are going to invest additional €19 million into the project in the nearest couple of years”, - Hendrick informed.
According to the Federal Minister, the nuclear reactor won’t pose such a threat if the power unit is covered with a new sarcophagus. Hendricks also criticized the use of nuclear energy, which, according to her, “was a deviation from the norm, nuclear energy is a deadlock technology with expensive consequences”.
“Of course, it’s for each separate country to decide, whether to use nuclear energy or not, and naturally they carry full responsibility when it comes to security”, - Hendricks added.
