Russian President Dmitry Medvedev announced Russia's plans to unveil a nuclear safety plan, the AFP reported Tuesday.

In a statement quoted by the Kremlin to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster, Medvedev said that at the upcoming G8 Summit in May, "Russia will come forward with a concrete initiative on increasing security of nuclear power station."

On April 26, 1986, an explosion at the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant in Ukraine released massive amounts of radiation into the atmosphere.
