The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone could become a world scientific center for the study of the peaceful atom.

This was stated by the Minister of ecology Ruslan Strelets during the prestige in the Zone, reports Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine.mepr.gov.ua

"35 days - that's how long the Exclusion Zone was under occupation. It is unlikely that the barbarians realized that they were endangering all of humanity. They hardly understood what they were doing when they destroyed almost 100 pieces of valuable analytical equipment unparalleled in Europe. "They hardly understood how they would use the looted equipment," Strelets commented.

An inventory and assessment of the amount of damage is currently underway in the Exclusion Zone. According to preliminary estimates, they amount to almost 2.5 billion hryvnias. Work is also underway to eliminate all the consequences of the occupation.
