Building structures of Neutron Source nuclear facility at Kharkiv institute receive minor damage amid Russian bombing – inspectorate.

The building structures of Neutron Source nuclear facility based on a subcritical assembly driven by a linear electron accelerator, located at the site of the Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology received minor damage amid Russian bombing on the evening of March 10.

"According to updated information, the building structures of the Neutron Source nuclear facility received minor damage. The power supply to safety-important systems/elements has been resumed. No damage that affected the state of nuclear and radiation safety has been identified. The radiation situation at the site is within normal limits," the State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate of Ukraine said.

The personnel of the operating organization continue to work to eliminate the consequences of the bombing.

The inspectorate draws attention to the fact that the Neutron Source nuclear facility, like any other nuclear installation, is not designed for operation in combat conditions.

"The continuation of its bombardment can lead to severe radiation consequences with contamination of nearby territories," the inspectorate said.

As reported, since February 24, the Neutron Source nuclear facility has been switched to a deep subcritical state.
