Ukraine will spend over $ 100 million on construction of a new object "Shelter" in 2011-2014, President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych said during a working visit to the State Specialized Enterprise "Chernobyl NPP", ForUm correspondent reports.

"The first task is to transform the "Shelter" into ecologically safe system. This means construction of a new protective shell. It is a key draft project of implementation of measures at the object "Shelter". Its service life is 100 years, and the cost is almost 1 billion euros," he said.

The President, on behalf of Ukraine, thanked the EBRD, the European Commission, Russia, the U.S., Canada and Japan for their active participation in the fund "Shelter".

He recalled that two years ago, Ukraine held the international forum "25 years after the Chernobyl catastrophe - a secure future." "It was attended by more than 700 scientists, public figures and politicians. As a result of this work we were able to raise the necessary funds to start building a reliable shelter over the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Expenditure of Ukraine in the period from 2011 to 2014 will exceed $ 100 million. I am sure that international partners will fulfill their obligations as well," Yanukovych added.
