KIEV, September 26 (Itar-Tass) - Costs of radioactive waste reburial in Ukraine under the agreement with the North Atlantic pact are currently estimated at about ten to fifteen million U.S. dollars, Ukraine’s Environment and Natural Resources Minister Oleg Proskuryakov told a news briefing on Thursday as he answered a question from IItar-Tass..
“The wastes will not be recycled, only reburied. Now the task is to ratify the agreement with NATO in the Vekhovna Rada /Ukraine’s lower house of parliament - Itar-Tass/,” Proskuryakov said adding that donor-states would finance the work.
About 1,000 cubic meters of radioactive waste stored at the Ukrainian six military facilities are due to be reburied at the Ukrainian state corporation Radon and at the Vektor industrial complex located within the Chernobyl zone of alienation.
In September, 2013 Ukraine and NATO signed an implementation agreement on safe reburial of radioactive wastes stored in Ukraine since 1960-1990s after military projects were carried out in the then Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.
The program is envisioned for a four-year period.
