Saudi Arabia will gradually abandon oil in order to get 50% of its energy from renewable sources, including solar and wind, in 10 years.

Czech Prime Minister Andrei Babis admitted that the announcement of a tender for the construction of a new power unit of the Dukovany NPP in the South-East of the republic, scheduled for December, may be postponed due to the upcoming elections to the lower house of the national parliament in the fall of 2021.

The inspection of the reactor vessel started at the unit No. 5 (VVER-1200) of the Leningrad NPP.
