NOVOVORONEZH, November 20 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday he was satisfied with the current level of research and development in Russia’s nuclear sector.
“Nuclear technologies are at a very advanced stage and we must keep this state of things and give it a fresh competitive impetus,” Medvedev said at a meeting of the presidential council on economic modernization and innovation development. “There is actual progress not only in such big sectors as the development of nuclear power engineering in general but in applied sectors where we have set top-priority tasks.”
“It is vital now to preserve all this,” he stressed and called to offer real assistance to promising developments. A list of instructions will be drafted on the results of today’s meeting, Medvedev added.
