Russian liberal Yabloko party to hold referendum

December 10, 2001

The Russian liberal Yabloko party plans to hold a referendum in Russia on the issue of spent nuclear fuel imports in December 2001 or in January 2002, ABN reports. It was decided at the last meeting of St. Petersburg department of the party to hold a referendum in Russia to support Yabloko’s position against spent nuclear fuel imports. Yabloko representatives stated its position soon after the Russian State Duma had approved the spent nuclear fuel imports: they stated that they would hold a referendum to ban the storage of foreign spent nuclear fuel in Russia. The most recent amendments to Russian laws permit the storage of spent nuclear fuel in Russia and maintenance after reprocessing in the country.
