ATHENS – The Greek Atomic Energy Commission (EEAE) on Thursday said that radiation levels in Greece are normal after the forest fire that raged near the Chernobyl nuclear power plant between April 4 and 14.

On its official page, EEAE says that according to information provided by Ukrainian authorities, “radiation measurements conducted there from 4 to 7 April 2020, including the city of Kiev, indicate no significant dispersion of radioactivity over long distances.”

EEAE added that announcements made by other regulatory authorities in Europe also confirm no change in radiation levels in Greece.

The commission noted that in the midst of the pandemic, the operational capability required to conduct the ongoing environmental radioactivity monitoring in Greece remains unaffected.
