Nuclear Groups Band Together to Support Ukrainian Peers

They are engaging with them to provide necessary aid

The American Nuclear Society’s (ANS) Rapid Response Taskforce network of experts is monitoring Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the war’s potential nuclear safety and security repercussions. ANS also moved quickly to help their counterparts in Ukraine by establishing a fund, in partnership with the European Nuclear Society (ENS), to send supplies into the war-torn country. The groups have raised more than $120,000 so far.

“The nuclear technology community is fairly tight-knit,” said ANS Executive Director and CEO Craig Piercy. “That’s really where the benefits of civil society organizations come to the fore.”

ENS is a strategic partner that is helping not only with funds but also with on-the-ground logistics. The group coordinated with contacts in Poland, which have been instrumental in helping order supplies, transport them across the border into Ukraine, and get them into the hands of nuclear workers and their families.
