Ukrainian authorities retrieved radioactive material believed to have been stolen from the now-defunct Chernobyl nuclear power plant a decade ago, an official said Wednesday.
Security officers discovered a plastic bag with 14 pieces of nuclear fuel during a routine search of the damaged reactor's perimeter last week, said Stanislav Shektela, a spokesman for the plant.
He said that the radioactive material "was probably missing since 1995" when a group of people was arrested and convicted of stealing nuclear fuel from the destroyed reactor's central hall.
Experts are now trying to positively identify the material while police investigate, Shektela said.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
