On Friday, April 1, it became known that Russian troops had abandoned the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, handing over control of the plant to the Ukrainian side. According to a statement by the Ukrainian company “Energoatom”, the abandonment of positions resulted from the fact that the Russian military received increased doses of radiation while digging trenches in the exclusion zone. Other sources do not confirm this information.


The situation around Ukrainian nuclear power plants (NPP) continues to be the main focus of those interested in and involved in nuclear issues. Even though no more Ukrainian NPPs have come under the Russian control over the past two weeks, the international community in particular the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) – is worried about the safety of NPPs.


This week, the topic of the conflict in Ukraine has occupied the entire information space, and now it is not completely known what exactly current events will turn out for Russia and the world.
