According to information of civil activist Ivan Kruk, a fieldworker lost three fingers at the construction site of the Astravets Nuclear Power Plant, located near the town of Varniany.

As it was found out, mobile diesel power stations are used at the construction site, with violation of the safety rules. On 1 December field worker Aleh Sichynski received the trauma while trying to repair the cooling radiator of one of such stations.

At present the worker is kept in hospital. A check-up concerning the incident is allegedly conducted. However, the local state-owned newspaper “Astravetskaya Prauda” which usually writes about all, even minor incidents, keeps silent this time.
