UK allocates $4m to Belarus on Chernobyl projects in 2015

MINSK, 1 May (BelTA) – In 2015 the UK allocated nearly $4 million to Belarus for the implementation of projects to mitigate the impact of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to Ireland Sergei Aleinik said in an interview to the RTR-Belarus TV channel, BelTA has learned.

“Britain is ranked third in the number of children the country welcomes for recuperation under the assistance program. Apart from that, the total financial aid last year made up almost $4 million. The aid was allocated for the implementation of socially important and humanitarian projects in Mogilev and Gomel Oblasts of Belarus,” said Sergei Aleinik.

The Ambassador noted that Belarus and the UK enjoy long-standing humanitarian cooperation. “Sensible conservatism, common sense and reasonableness of the British people go in harmony with the feeling of compassion with people who seem to be geographically far away. Years-long efforts of more than a dozen of charitable humanitarian organizations of the UK, which provide assistance to Belarus in the mitigation of the Chernobyl impact, testify to the fact,” Sergei Aleinik added.
