The problem of providing physical and operational nuclear security should be addressed in all of its aspects, President Viktor Yanukovych said in his speech at the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Security Summit, ForUm learned from the presidential press office.

"The analysis of the nuclear industry’s biggest accidents: at the Chornobyl NPP in Ukraine and at the Fukushima Daiichi NPP in Japan, confirms the necessity of such an approach. These accidents have shown that no physical nuclear security can be ensured without operational nuclear safety," said Viktor Yanukovych.

The President thanked the international community for the support it had provided to Ukraine in overcoming the consequences of the Chornobyl disaster. "Last year’s Kyiv International Donor Conference was a success, and on April 26, Ukraine starts building a new confinement over the Chornobyl Power Plant’s damaged unit," he said.

Viktor Yanukovych emphasized that Ukraine practices a multilevel integrated approach to nuclear security. "With the introduction of the appropriate comprehensive definition of potential threats, the national system of physical protection got effective tools to design, upgrade, and evaluate physical protection of nuclear and other radiation hazardous facilities," he said.

Thus, the President said, the application of integrated approach allowed Ukraine to take various aspects of physical and operational security into account in its nuclear policy.
