During a speech at a solemn ceremony to mark the completion of the construction of a new protective arch over the fourth power unit of Chernobyl, President Petro Poroshenko called the accident at the power plant a less terrible ordeal than the aggression of Russia.
“Nobody could imagine that the Chernobyl ordeal will not be the worst thing that Ukraine would have to go through. That Ukraine would build the arch in conditions of war with Russia,” quotes the press service of the Presidential Administration.
At the same time the President thanked the international community for assistance in the construction of the arch and support for stopping “Russian aggression”.
“This is the largest movable structure in the world ever built by mankind. The coalition of 28 countries in support of Ukraine gathered more than €1.417 billion in order to to build it along with Ukraine,” said Poroshenko.
Earlier, Korrespondent.net reported that on the internet there was a video of the process of covering the fourth power unit of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant with a protective arch.
