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.
