"The lesson learnt from Chernobyl disaster that we are not ready to cope with the effects of nuclear disaster."

"There is no time after the nuclear accident, there is only time since.. and many paid for this incidents with their health, life or lives of their children."

"It’s very hurting that the number of certain cancers increasing and other diseases are coming in addition."

"We should not extent nuclear risks into the future, my advice to Ukraine for the energy strategy and for the future – there are alternatives to nuclear technology, they are renewables."

"Public opinion is changing in Belgium when we had terror attacks. There was information also on nuclear plants. So this risk is a terror risk… and this is one of the reasons why we always advocate against nuclear."
