Schroeder in Ukraine for Chernobyl negotiations

German chancellor Schroeder is in the Ukraine, attempting to persuade the government not to build two new nuclear reactors to replace the Chernobyl complex.

In 1995, G7 countries promised the Ukraine over one billion dollars to support the construction of two new nuclear power plants and enable the closure of the infamous Chernobyl complex. Faced with increasing anti-nuclear pressure, and a general trend of phasing out nuclear power in Europe, the German Chancellor is attempting to persuade the Ukraine to build conventional power stations instead.
