Mykhaylo Baloha, Emergency Minister and member of NSNU Council said that Ukrainian President had not intended to create a deposit for radioactive waste on the territory of Chernobyl NPP.

“Quoting the president, this question is to be studied from a political point of view,” said the Minister on the Government’s Day in the Parliament dedicated to the 5th anniversary of the closure of Chernobyl NPP.

“You understand very well what he meant saying “political,” Baloha stressed.

“I face the law of Ukraine on radioactive waste. The fifth article says that Verkhovna Rada is the only body competent to cope with radioactive waste. It is in the parliamentary competence. The President can not make such a decision. The President said that the body responsible for this has to take a political decision,” the Minister pointed out.

“That’s why I absolutely disagree with the point of view that the President might say he would make a deposit of nuclear waste on the territory of Chernobyl nuclear power plant,” the minister added.
