MOSCOW, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s state-run nuclear corporation Rosatom denied on Wednesday earlier media reports concerning corporation’s plans to resume construction of an unfinished nuclear power plant in Crimea.
Some media outlets reported earlier that the Russian state nuclear corporation intended to resume construction of the Crimean Nuclear Power Station, which is an abandoned and unfinished facility located near the cape of Kazantyp not far from the town of Shcholkino.
“Such media reports are not true and the state corporation Rosatom never sent to the government of Crimea any requests concerning the construction of a nuclear power plant,” the press service said.
The construction of the Crimean NPP was launched in 1975, during the times of the Soviet Union, with the aim of providing the Crimean peninsula with energy. The construction, however, was initially suspended in 1987 and the overall project was finally cancelled in 1989. The move followed the 1986 disaster involving Ukraine’s Chernobyl NPP.
