KIEV, September 25 (Itar-Tass) - Ukraine and Russia have long-term plans for cooperation in the field of nuclear power and the signing of an agreement on Association between Ukraine and the European Union will unlikely wield any impact on their implementation, Vassily Konstantinov, the Senior Vice President of the Russian nuclear fuel corporation TVEL told Itar-Tass Wednesday.
“We have our own plans for cooperation and we are not considering any cancellations,” he said. “There’s a program, in line with which we’re moving to meet each other halfway and, naturally, Ukraine has a sovereign right to decide on whether or not it’s going to join the EU.”
“We are not planning any revisions and the Ukrainian national atomic energy corporation Energoatom isn’t sending any signals to us either,” Konstantinov said. “Nor do the Ukrainian ministries (of energy and coalmining - Itar-Tass) send any notifications to us.
“We plan to commission a joint nuclear fuel factory in 2015 and I personally don’t know anyone who would have enough audacity to revise these plans,” he said.
