During the press conference Greenpeace nuclear experts will present an online map monitoring radiation levels in Southern Ukraine in real-time. It aims to provide comprehensive and objective information on the radiation safety of the region, available 24/7 to the public and authorities. 

The press conference will be held after the team from Greenpeace returned from Southern Ukraine, including Zaporizhzhia, Dnipro, Yuzhnoukrainsk, and Odesa where they held meetings with local authorities and emergency services. In partnership with the local NGO SaveDnipro, sensors have been installed to offer additional background radiation data to authorities and local residents, especially in the event of potential threats to the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant and the South Ukraine Nuclear Power Plant in Mykolaiv region. Aside from Southern Ukraine, Greenpeace experts have also visited Chornobyl, where they continued their research into the radiological conditions in the Exclusion Zone, together with the State Specialized Enterprise “Ecocenter”. 

Greenpeace will address the threats on the energy infrastructure posed by Russia, emphasizing the safety of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant and Ukraine’s other nuclear plants. The conference will include the role of the Russian State Nuclear Corporation Rosatom, the IAEA, and the urgent need for sanctions against Rosatom.
