What is the BMUV’s assessment of the situation in Ukraine with regard to nuclear safety and radiation protection?
The Federal Environment Ministry is currently analysing the repercussions of Russia’s attacks against Ukraine, which are in violation of international law, particularly with regard to nuclear safety and radiation protection. The BMUV is continuously monitoring the situation, supported by the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) and the technical support organisation GRS (Gesellschaft für Anlagen- und Reaktorsicherheit). The Ukrainian government, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and international partners are sharing their information with Germany.
If there are any indications of increased radioactive levels, the BfS is following up on them. For up-to-date information please refer to the BMUV press releases and Twitter channel and the BfS website and Twitter channel.
