A new EU assistance package worth EUR 3.5 million was decided after a comprehensive assessment of the site carried out with EU funding in 2015-2016 at the request of the Ministry of Energy.
The EU Delegation and Science and Technology Centre in Ukraine officials, as well as representatives of local and central Ukrainian administrations and of the Verkhovna Rada, visited the Pridniprovskiy Chemical Plant site together with about 25 media representatives and indicated the urgent need to remove radioactive waste from the site.
