On the 35th anniversary of the Chornobyl nuclear fire, President Zelenskiy yesterday inaugurated a €448 million nuclear waste repository.

Located near the shuttered nuclear power plant, the unit is “the largest dry spent fuel storage facility in the world” according to the EBRD which coordinated donation from OECD countries. Designed to last 100 years, the facility is to package in double-walled canisters and store in concrete the 21,000 spent fuel assemblies of Chornobyl reactors 1, 2 and 3.
