The United States of America will help Ukraine to diversify the supply sources of nuclear fuel. Rick Perry, the U.S. Secretary of Energy claimed this.
‘We will also help Ukraine to diversify the sources of nuclear fuel supply and provide services with spent nuclear fuel. We are ready to support the cooperation between Ukraine and Westinghouse company, which is growing all the time in the supply of fresh nuclear fuel, as well as the cooperation with Holtec, which builds Ukrainian storage for spent fuel wastes. We will be providing a technical assistance to Ukrainian developments in the safety of nuclear plants realm so that they provide a proper level of safety at nuclear stations in Ukraine,’ Perry claimed.
Besides, the Secretary added that energy resources couldn’t be used as a tool for coercion because the U.S. to support the national and energy security of Ukraine.
‘I want to remind the countries that want to use energy for their own political objectives that America today is the first to produce both oil and gas throughout the world, we have the largest arsenal of these resources, and we will use it as a tool of liberation, rather than conquest,’ Perry advised.
As we reported earlier, the U.S. will be supporting Ukraine in countering the construction of Nord Stream 2 and Turk Stream gas pipelines.
