KIEV, April 27. /TASS/. The European Union will allocate €70 million to Ukraine to build protective structures in the zone of the Chernobyl nuclear plant, President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker said on Monday after the Ukraine-EU summit.
Earlier, while visiting the Chernobyl plant, Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko said Ukraine had to "bear the burden of the Chernobyl disaster" alone.
The construction of a new safe confinement, known as New Shelter, at the Chernobyl nuclear plant is estimated at €1.425 billion. Some €500 million is needed to complete the project, said Viktor Zalizetsky, a deputy head of the Shelter project.
