CHORNOBYL, Ukraine – In April, Kyiv will host a Twenty-Five Years After The Chornobyl Disaster: Safety for the Future international forum that expects attendance of United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon as well as top officials from the European Union, America and Canada.
Ukraine’s government wants money – lots of it. But it is not clear whether the West, worried about corruption, will provide the resources.
Urgent action is needed. Chornobyl experts say that there are still 200 tons of nuclear fuel buried under the wreckage of the exploded block 4 reactor, thus the timely construction of the new shelter is crucial.
