The Ukrainian Parliament passed the law on the extension of the program, which aims to dispose of the Chornobyl nuclear power plant and to turn the confinement into an environmentally safe system before 2020. 229 Ukrainian MPs supported the bill, with 226 votes necessary to pass.

Over the next two years, Ukraine's government is supposed to spend approximately 107 million U.S. dollars to implement the program.

The approved bill offers certain measures that need to be implemented on this particular stage of eventual closure and conservation of the power plant. The law will take effect in January 2019.

The pictures that became the favorites of the wildlife photo contest held by London Natural History Museum were announced. One of the nominees for the prizes is "Visit to school" by British photographer Adrian Bliss as the museum reported.

The "Visit to school" shows a fox that stands among the empty schoolroom in Prypyat situated in three kilometers from the Chornobyl nuclear power plant. A lot of old gas masks are all around the floor of the room.
