Chernobyl conference vows wise spending

Tomorrow is the final day of a four-day conference on Chernobyl, itself the curtain-raiser for a week of commemorations in Ukraine of the nuclear accident which took place a quarter-century ago. With the green light given to over a half a billion euros to build a new anti-radiation concrete shell over the gutted reactor, guarantees are now needed that the new shield will represent value for money, and do the job. "The most terrible thing is that the money was out of control. Today the most serious problem deals with controling the money spent. A lot of the 700 million already spent has been wasted. Apart from money, Europe can help with specialists. This is very, very important. I think that today although money is important we need a high quality approach to solve this problem. It was Fukushima that sent out a very serious signal -you should pay great attention to the consequences of accidents like these," says Chenobyl official receiver, Anatolyi Rakhanskyi.
