A team of environmentalists opposed the Cabinet's decision to reconstruct the Sofia-based nuclear reactor of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS).

At a special press conference the environmentalists pointed out that nuclear reactor was shut down years ago but its radioactive fallout is still on the site located between the Maldost and Druzhba neighbourhoods in the capital city.

Ekoglastnost's deputy chairman Petar Penchev said that in 1983 there has been an accident with the reactor and radioactive fallout has been spread across Sofia.

A special referendum on the reconstruction of the reactor will be launched as of Sunday in Sofia.
