This project seeks to reduce the threat to the Ukrainian and neighbouring populations from stolen or illicitly trafficked nuclear or radiological materials. This is done by securing critical borders currently under Ukrainian control and addressing vulnerabilities near sensitive nuclear facilities and newly recovered territory. Project activities include: (1) providing radiation detection, communication, patrol and surveillance equipment to Ukraine’s State Border Guard Service, the State Emergency Service and the National Police of Ukraine; and (2) providing related operational and maintenance training on the equipment.

Expected results 

The expected outcome for this project is improved detection and response to nuclear or radiological security incidents by Ukraine’s Border Guard Service, the State Emergency Service and the National Police of Ukraine at border sites and within the country.
