KIEV, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Till the end of February, Ukraine intends to withdraw rocket fuel components from the Odessa region to Russia, the Ministry of Defense reported on Friday.
The latest 550 tonnes of fuel will be withdrawn to Russia for disposal, the report says.
“We’ve started loading components to railway tank-cars to send them to Russia for disposal at one of the enterprises of the military-industrial complex,” commander of a military unit, Lieutenant-Colonel Alexander Yatluk said.
Till the end of next week about 700 tonnes of components are planning to be loaded to 13 special railway tank-cars. OSCE representatives and the Ukrainian Defense Ministry monitor the process, Yaltuk said.
A total of 3,500 tonnes of rocket fuel components are stored at a depot in the Lyubashovka district. They were started to be withdrawn to Russia in the beginning of July 2013. After the USSR collapse Ukraine had 16,700 tonnes of excessive and substandard components. The withdrawal is being held within the joint project with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
