WiN Ukraine joined a two-day nuclear threat detection training from the University of Bristol

A practical training course was held on October 20-21, 2022, in Bristol, Great Britain, by the University of Bristol and Sellafield Ltd and GNSP (Global Nuclear Security Partners). The exercises were also attended by representatives of the European Commission and industrial and governmental organizations of
Great Britain.

The training exercise, attended by the President of WiN Ukraine, Margaryta Rayets, and the Vice-President of the Organization, Anastasiia Nechytailo, focused on a fictitious scenario involving a facility that processes radioactive sources returned to government control after a period of occupation by enemy
military forces. The training took place within the framework of a specially developed scenario to ensure realism and was conducted under the guidance of British subject matter experts.

During the training, the participants gained practical experience using modern technologies. The British side noted that the same technologies might be presented in Ukraine soon to help verify the current state of placement of radioactive materials in the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone and at individual nuclear facilities that were damaged or looted by Russian aggressors.
