Yavlinsky opposes spent nuclear fuel imports

April 4, 2002

He criticised heavily the officials who had authorised the import of foreign spent nuclear fuels. "People who want to obtain $20m over 40 years are just swindlers" noted Yavlinsky. He emphasized the danger created by the Russian government by agreeing to store and reprocess foreign spent nuclear fuel. The trains, which bring the fuel, are so heavy that Russia’s worn-out railways may not cope and then serious environmental disasters can happen. Yavlinsky does not trust the companies engaged in nuclear waste shipment and storage: "It is madness to store nuclear waste in the country with our bureaucrats. This represents a gift to all terrorists."
