Canada has allocated $6 million for projects to improve nuclear security in Ukraine.

 
This is stated in the message of the Permanent Mission of Canada to the UN.
 
"To help improve nuclear security in Ukraine, Canada has committed $1 million to the IAEA to strengthen security and precautions at Ukrainian nuclear facilities.. Also $5 million from the US State Department to assist Ukraine in identifying and responding to illegal nuclear shipments on its territory.
 
The Canadian mission to the UN also noted that "the occupation of the ZNPP exposes the population of the world to danger."
 
"Further destabilization by Russian forces not only increases the risk of incident or inadvertent damage, but also makes the diversion of nuclear materials more likely," the statement said.
