KIEV, Ukraine (AP) - Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych is renewing calls for funding to build a new
shelter around the Chernobyl nuclear reactor on the accident's 25th anniversary.
Ukraine still needs to raise some $300 million for the project after an international donors conference held here earlier this month.
Yanukovych says in a statement that "no nation ... can overcome the consequences of a catastrophe of such a scale by itself." Ukrainians began marking the anniversary of the world's worst
nuclear disaster early today.
