MOSCOW, June 11. /TASS/. Russia included the reactor and fuel assemblies in Crimea in the list of installations, to which the guarantees of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) may apply, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

"We agreed to include the reactor and fuel assemblies in the list of items, to which the IAEA guarantees in Russia may apply," says a statement by head of the Russian delegation at the session of the IAEA Board of Governors Grigory Berdennikov posted on the ministry’s website. "The aim is to give the agency’s inspectors an opportunity to come, check and make sure that everything is in order, if necessary."

"The procedure of putting these items in the mentioned list under the Safeguards Agreement is confined to notification, it doesn’t require special discussions with the secretariat or anybody else," Berdennikov said. "We took into account IAEA’s decision not to choose these items for applying guarantees. That’s the agency’s right under the Safeguards Agreement, and the motives behind it don’t matter. We believe Russia and IAEA have reached an understanding on the Crimean facilities."

"Acting within its jurisdiction, Russia has assumed full responsibility for the nuclear facilities in the new constituent entities. We are determined to use them for peaceful purposes only," the statement says.
