MOSCOW, May 31. /TASS/. Ukraine plans to extend a uranium enrichment contract with Russia, the director of a subsidiary of the Ukrainian nuclear power plant operator Energoatom said on Tuesday.
"This year, there are also plans to extend the contract and the sides are now completing the procedures for its signing," Alexander Rybchuk told the Atomexpo-2016 forum.
‘We’re also planning that deliveries from the IUEC [International Uranium Enrichment Center] will be carried out in 2016," he said.
As Rybchuk told TASS, the Ukrainian side does not plan to change the delivery volumes in 2016. At the same time, the sides didn’t discuss adjustments to the contract beyond 2017, he said.
Ukraine sends its uranium to Russia for enrichment and the production of nuclear fuel for Ukrainian nuclear power plants. The annual volume of enriched uranium deliveries to Ukraine equals 60,000 SWUs (separate work units).
