HELSINKI, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia intends to finance the construction of Hanhikivi-1 nuclaer power plant in north-western Finland from the Russian National Welfare Fund, State Nuclear Energy Coropration Rosatom Chief Sergei Kiriyenko told a news conference on Tuesday.

Rosatom won the tenders and gained support of the Russian government, which is prepared to invest into the project from the National Welfare Fund, Kiriyenko said. He explained that the funds would be borrowed from the budget reserve and that the money would not be needed in Russia for several dozen years. A number of banks had earlier declared that they were ready to finance the project on advantageous terms, Kiriyenko added.
