Ukraine will no longer remove spent nuclear fuel to Russia. It was reported by Acting President of the State Enterprise “National Nuclear Energy Generating Company “Energoatom” Petro Kotin during his visit to the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station, correspondent reports.

"We do not plan to recycle anything in Russia. But to do so, we need to provide a railway branch by May, so that the first container of spent fuel can get to the centralized storage of spent nuclear fuel," stated the head of Energoatom.
