Ukraine has asked the International Atomic Energy Agency for equipment to safely run nuclear plants.

Vienna, April 25 – In response to the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) request for a comprehensive list of equipment it needs for its safe and secure operation of its nuclear facilities in the wake of the ongoing war, Ukraine has provided the IAEA with a comprehensive list.

The IAEA has released a report that Ukraine sent equipment to two nuclear facilities in the country with the intention of helping them produce safer nuclear energy. The list includes various radiation measurement devices, protective material, computer-related assistance, power supply systems and diesel generators.

The IAEA’s Unified System for Information Exchange in Incidents and Emergencies (USIE) is a secure web site that allows countries to communicate with each other effectively. This would enable the Agency to effectively coordinate and implement the delivery of support to Ukraine.

Earlier this month, the IAEA delivered initial equipment to Ukraine when Grossi visited the South Ukraine Nuclear Power Plant. More will be delivered when he travels to the Chernobyl this week.

Since the end of the Russian military campaign in February, 2016, Ukrainian forces have regained control of two nuclear power plants – Zaporizhzhya and Chernobyl. These plants are now back in Ukrainian hands, and they will be used for national security purposes.
