This chapter presents an overview of environmental contamination in Ukraine caused by radioactive material. In general, radioactive contamination on the territory of Ukraine comes from three principal sources: the Chernobyl accident; the milling and mining of uranium, including uranium ore transportation by railroad; and radiation leakage due to the mishandling of radioactive material used in industry, science, and medicine.
