Russia and Ukraine have reached an agreement to take care of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, a Russian representative said on Friday night.

Mikhail Ulyanov, Russia’s top representative in the Vienna talks on Iran’s nuclear program, announced the agreement.

According to Ulyanov, the Russian Ministry of Defense has reached an agreement with Ukrainian forces to ensure that security in Chernobyl is maintained.

Chernobyl and the surrounding area have been shut down since an explosion and fire in the nuclear reactor in 1986. 

Higher levels of radiation have been reported in the area as a result of heavy military vehicles in the area during the Russian attack on Ukraine. Russian forces have announced that they have taken control of the power plant.
