RICHLAND -- Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland will be providing support as new radiation detection equipment is commissioned at the Kharkiv International Airport in the Ukraine.
The National Nuclear Support Administration and the Administration of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine announced the project this week.
The U.S. has been working with Ukraine since 2005 to provide radiation detection at more than 80 international crossing points in the country.
Ukraine is a potential transit country for illicit radioactive and nuclear materials moving between Europe and Asia.
PNNL also provides support for sites already equipped in Ukraine.
