Romania to grant EUR 500,000 for Chernobyl sarcophagus

Romania will grant Ukraine a EUR 500,000-aid for the consolidation of the Chernobyl concrete sarcophagus, after the Foreign Ministry will be allotted this amount from the Government’s Reserve Fund. According to Mediafax, Romania’s contribution, of EUR 500,000, was approved on April 11 and announced, eight days later, in Kiev, at the donors’ conference to raise funds for the implementation of security-enhancement projects on the site of the former nuclear plant in Chernobyl. The security-enhancement projects are managed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

The Ukrainian government announced, during the April conference, that the promised donations for this project amount to EUR 550 M, below the EUR 740 M needed to consolidate the concrete dome.
