KIEV, August 4 /TASS/. Ukraine plans to denounce agreement with Russia on the completion of construction of the third and fourth units of the Khmelnitskaya nuclear power plant.
On Tuesday, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) registered a relevant government-proposed bill, which should first be considered by parliamentary leaders, the legislature’s website said.
Ukraine and Russia signed an agreement on cooperation in the construction of the third and fourth units of the Khmelnitskaya NPP on June 9, 2010 under which Russia is supposed to provide funds for design works and for launching the power units into operation.
In October 2014, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk ordered the national energy company Energoatom to speed up the completion of construction of the power units with European partners. Czech Skoda seems to be the most likely candidate to finish the construction. But the firm cannot get down to work before Ukraine denounces its agreement with Russia.
