The project was partly funded by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) with plans starting back in 1998 and the contract for the structure being put in place in 2007, Metro reported.

Deputy project manager Victor Zalizetskyi, who has worked at the Chernobyl plant since 1987, said he was "filled with pride" that he got to contribute to something "that has such a big importance for all humankind," according to ITV News.

The Chernobyl nuclear power station was the site of the world's worst nuclear civilian accident on April 26, 1986, when Reactor 4 exploded, killing at least 30 people.

Zelensky said: "We will create a green corridor for tourists, Chernobyl is a unique place on the planet where nature [has been] reborn after a huge man-made disaster. We have to show this place to the world: to scientists, ecologists, historians [and] tourists," the president added.

There has been a spike in interest in the site after the hit TV series which has garnered the highest ratings for an HBO show on IMDB.
