KIEV, June 5. /TASS/. Russia and Ukraine may revise the term of removal of nuclear waste from Ukrainian nuclear power plants in 2015, Energoatom, a Ukrainian state-run nuclear concern, said on Friday.
"The terms of removal nuclear waste from Ukrainian nuclear plants in 2015 have not yet been agreed because the Russian side is trying to revise the current pricing formula on nuclear waste handling services," the concern said on its official website.
According to Energoatom, prices for nuclear waste removal in 2011-2014 were denominated in Russian roubles. "Annual price growth within that period was five percent on the price of the previous year, which was much below the inflation both in Russia and in Ukraine," it said.
Nuclear waste is being removed from Ukrainian nuclear power plants to Russia under the agreement on cooperation in the nuclear energy sector signed by the two countries on January 14, 1993.
As of today, removal of nuclear waste to Russia is the only available option of handling such waste for Ukrainian nuclear plants built by Russian technologies. More to it, Russia is the key nuclear fuel supplier to Ukraine.
