MOSCOW, June 1. /TASS/. Russia’s state-run nuclear corporation Rosatom will not decrease nuclear fuels supplies to Ukraine, a senior officer of TVEL Co. said on Monday.
"Supplies of our fuels to Ukraine will be continued and will not be reduced, if politics is not meddling," Alexei Grigoryev, TVEL Senior vice president, told journalists.
He said Russian contracts have not been revised and there have been no problems with either fuel shipments or payments.
Russia’s TVEL Fuel Company is a key supplier of nuclear fuels for Ukrainian nuclear power plants.
Nuclear power occupies one of the most prominent places in the Ukrainian economy. Over recent years, having only 22.8% of the installed capacity, nuclear power plants during autumn and winter maximum loads generated about 53% of the country's electricity. Currently there are 15 operating power units at four Ukrainian NPPs.
They are operated by the state-run company Energoatom.
The Zaporizhia nuclear plant with an installed generating capacity of 6,000 megawatt is the biggest energy facility in Ukraine and Europe. It generates about 50% of electricity produced by Ukraine’s nuclear plants and accounts for more than 22% of the aggregate electricity generation in the country.
