Project number: 760a
Ukrainian SBGS – Lisichansk Border Detachment
Ukrainian SBGS – Lisichansk Border Detachment
Project summary:

Nordisk Sikkerhet AS assisted the State Border Guard Service (SBGS) of Ukraine by providing the staff at the Lisichansk border detachment located along the uncontrolled area in the South-East Ukraine with the technical means and training for nuclear and radiological materials control. The Lisichansk border detachment is a newly established SBGS border detachment, which lacked hand-held detectors, personal dosimeters, contamination control and decontamination supplies. This project addressed these needs by providing radiological and nuclear material detection, dosimetry, decontamination equipment and corresponding trainings. This project raised the detection and mitigation capability of the SBGS and helps SBGS to prevent and manage the illicit trafficking of nuclear and radiological material through the vulnerable perimeter with uncontrolled territory in the South-East of Ukraine.
