The Ministry on emergency situations and on affairs of population protection against the consequences of Chornobyl catastrophe doesn’t object to the creation of nature reserves and closed woods on the territory of alienated zone of Chornobyl NPS, said Emergency Situations Minister Volodymyr Shandra at the press conference today.

According to him, the level of radioactive contamination in the alienation zone is very high, but the contamination is local. There are, said the minister, so called clean spots which can be used for the objects of that kind.

Shandra also said that this summer they plan to acquire bison which will be kept on the limited territory for a while. After implementation of this pilot project they will plan the creation of the nature conservation objects on this territory.

In a reply to the question about the reasonability of state popularization of tours to the alienated zone, the minister said:” The tours to zone must be organized for people could see the price for human mistake”.
