KIEV, January 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Energy Ministry is informing Russia and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) of the latest developments in Ukraine.
"Not only are we keeping our partners in Russia and the IAEA informed. We are closely cooperating with them in connection with the current situation in the country,” Ukraine’s Energy Minister Eduard Stavitsky told Itar-Tass on Monday.
He said that Russian and IAEA nuclear energy experts were expected to arrive in Ukraine next week, adding the situation at Ukrainian nuclear power plants was under control.
“I am going to say with full responsibility that I am not going to allow any interference in the work of the nuclear power sector and I would like to use this opportunity to assure all our partners that the situation is under control and that all the facilities are operating normally and are reliably protected,” Stavitsky went on to say.
Stavitsky told a news conference on Monday that all nuclear power stations in Ukraine (15 nuclear power units) had been transferred to a special safety regime. Asked to comment what a special safety regime is, Stavitsky refused to disclose the information because it was strictly confidential.
