"Political decisions were made allowing us to say with certainty that the issue of raising funds for building the Shelter is resolved,” Kostyantyn Gryshchenko said.
According to him, after such a fundamental decision the Chornobyl funds’ budgets will become deficit-free, allowing starting a full-scale implementation of the Chornobyl project and completing this work by 2015.
"It is very important for us that already now, this year, we can start building the Shelter, which will protect Kyiv, Ukraine, the world from possible risks associated with the consequences of the Chornobyl disaster," the Minister said.
