During the occupation of the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone by Russian troops, the unique laboratories (http://www.ispnpp.kiev.ua/pro-naslidky-rashizmu/) of the Institute for Safety Problems of NPP of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, located in the city of Chornobyl, were destroyed.
However, thanks to the help of fellow scientists from the University of Bristol (UK), the ISP NPP scientists will be able to partially restore their laboratories. The University of Bristol donated a gamma-spectrometer, computers and other equipment as humanitarian aid to the ISP NPP. Scientists from the University of Bristol were among the first to respond to an appeal by Anatoly Zagorodny, President of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (http://www.ispnpp.kiev.ua/appeal-nas-ukraine/) to restore the Institute’s scientific base. Throughout, British colleagues have shared with Ukrainian scientists their losses and continue to provide invaluable support to both scientists and the people of Ukraine during this difficult time of war.
On behalf of the entire staff of the Institute for Safety Problems of Nuclear Power Plant of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Director of the Institute Academician Anatolii Nosovskyi sincerely thanks the University of Bristol and personally Professor Tom Scott and Dr. Peter Martin for their assistance, which will make it possible to restore and continue laboratory studies of changes in the condition of fuel-containing materials of the Shelter object.
