In Ukraine, the full nuclear cycle should be created to reach the world level in the handling of spent nuclear fuel without Russia's participation, - reported the Head of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources Ostap Semerak.
According to his words, the dumping of nuclear fuel is a matter of "national security and economic expediency."
"I do not understand why we should pay Russia our money for the disposal of nuclear fuel if we can do this safe by ourselves. I would discuss this situation with the Ministry of Energy and Energoatom Company. I also plan to invite the donor countries to support this project” – said Semerak.
