The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has approved a strategy of the integrated automated radiation monitoring system for the period up to 2024.
According to Ukrinform, this was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine.
It is noted that the implementation of the strategy in Ukraine will create a unified integrated radiation monitoring system, which will be synchronized with EUropean Radiological Data Exchange Platform (EURDEP).
In addition, Ukraine will introduce mechanisms for early warning of the population and forecasting the development of the radiation situation in the country during the transboundary movement of radioactive material.
"In the conditions of war and continuous radiation threats from Russia, there is an urgent need for combining radiation monitoring data by creating a unified system at the state level and integrating it into the European radiological data exchange platform EURDEP. This is an extremely important security issue for both Ukraine and Europe. The unified monitoring system will allow us to detect and respond quickly to threats of radioactive material movement in Ukraine and abroad," said Minister of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine Ruslan Strilets.
