ST. PETERSBURG, October 13. /TASS/. The global political situation has exerted no influence on Russian nuclear power corporation Rosatom’s scientific projects and international scientific cooperation, Deputy CEO Vyacheslav Pershukov said at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) briefing on Monday.
The imposed sanctions did not affect Russia’s investments in the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), an international project to create an experimental thermonuclear reactor based on tokamak, Pershukov said. The reactor is now expected to be created by 2020.
Besides Russia, participants of the €15 billion project also include the EU, India, China, South Korea, the US and Japan.
