KIEV, Oct. 6 A centralized storage facility for radioactive waste is to open in the Chernobyl zone in 2013, Head of the State Agency for Managing the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone Volodymyr Kholosha told reporters during a briefing in the Chernobyl zone (Kiev region).

"This storage facility will allow all of the radioactive waste from the territory of Ukraine that is stored at special facilities of bankrupt enterprises to be collected together and stored safely here for at least fifty years," he said.
