RIA Novosti, PUBLISHED 29.09.2014
Ukraine is following all its obligations on the delivery of equipment for Russian nuclear power plants, Evgeny Romanov, Director General of Rosenergoatom, said on Sunday.
"I can say that for the time being, Ukrainian companies are following all their obligations. Deliveries are made on time. We are carrying out normal cooperation. The overall tensions are not transferred onto our dialogue with Ukrainian enterprises," Romanov said in an interview with the Russia 24 channel.
"We are widely using [Ukrainian] products in the construction of nuclear power plants . . . For us, products made by Ukrainian manufacturers are very important," he added.
Rosenergoatom has calculated possible risks, associated with the Ukrainian crisis and considered alternate solutions, Romanov said. "These are nothing more than hypothetical plans which we are considering like any normal business structure", he stressed.
An armed conflict began in Ukraine as Kiev launched a military operation against independence supporters in the Donbas region in April.
Kiev authorities have repeatedly accused Russia of aiding Donbas independence supporters. Moscow has denied any involvement in the internal Ukrainian crisis.
Ten ministers voted in favor of granting the application, while seven ministers voted against.
If we look at Rosatom's activities, there have been no problems whatsoever.
Several Russian companies, including OKB Gidropress and Atomstroyexport participated in the seminar.
