Radioactive Waste and Spent Nuclear Fuel Management in Russia: View of Non-Governmental Organizations

One of the areas of state policy in the sphere of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel management is provision of environmental safety for the population. On the basis of general legal principles the state policy of Russia in the sphere of radioactive waste (RW) and spent nuclear fuel (SNF) management should not contradict the fundamental rights and legitimate interests of its citizens. The right to favourable environment, ecological and radiation safety, sustainable use of natural resources belongs both to the current and future generations. These rights are legally important and they must determine the essence of adopted normative acts. For this purpose the state policy of RW and SNF management cannot contradict the national environmental policy.

Open letter

I ask you with the participation of independent experts to initiate a full investigation of the facts stated in the open letter of the construction worker of Leningrad NPP-2 Victor Petrovich Aleinikov, a "veteran of nuclear energy and industry" of Russia.

Papuans on the Nuclear Field

On March 3, this year, a participant of the Leningrad AES-2 construction (this nuclear plant has to succeed the ancient 40 years old Leningrad AES-1) gave an extensive devastating press conference on this nuclear project construction in the Leningrad region. Victor Aleynikov is a professional builder with an extensive work experience at atomic plants construction sites. As he states there are so many infringements, miscalculations, frauds at the project construction that one can hardly enumerate them. It is likely that the «Ostrovets» NPP in Belarus is being constructed in the same incompetent way and the same surprises can be expected at the “Hankikivi” nuclear power plant being built by “Rosatom” in Finland. Ordinary Finns are discussing this construction project in social networks, namely in the Facebook, very violently. What is happening on the nuclear projects of “Rosatom”? Who is building them and how?

Titan-2 Group, the general contractor of the construction of Leningrad NPP-2, initiated legal process against Victor Aleynikov Russian veteran of the nuclear industry and environmental NGO Green World (GW). This was reported March 26 by news agency Regnum (russian)

Disposal of Nuclear Waste in Russia: Fiction What?

Rosatom may change the approaches for organization of the national (international) nuclear waste repository. Novaya Zemlya have chance to be the repository of the nuclear waste

Russian Nuclear Mono-Towns: past and present

cover_mono-towns.jpgOne of the biggest secrets in the Soviet society was its closed towns. Some of them were well known, but others were so secret that they did not seem to exist. Existing towns that were turned into a closedtown ceased to exist on maps. In other places big towns grew up without any trace on maps or any other official records. Very few except those who lived there knew about their existence. Often they were known to the outside world only by their postcode, for example Krasnoyarsk-26, which stands for Zheleznogorsk.

Доходный бизнес

Росатом продолжает поставки ядерного топлива для нужд мирового атомпрома ( ). Программа утилизации российского оружейного урана закончилась, а наработанные бизнес-схемы остались. Химичить на поставках топлива через Южную Корею атомщики начали ещё с середины 1990-х годов, когда по межправительственному соглашению половина поставок ядерного топлива оплачивалась корейцами деньгами, а другая половина товаром, который часто прокачивался через прикормленные фирмёшки. Так делали бизнес атомные дельцы. И, судя по тому, что не так давно в США был арестован сынок бывшего видного деятеля атомной промышленности СССР/России Микерина, видимо, ничего с тех пор принципиально не изменилось. Как атомные бизнесмены зарабатывали на поставках ядерного топлива за рубеж, можно почитать на Компромат.ру

On the Need for Democratic Standards when Siting Atomic Energy Facilities in Russia


A Statement of Non-Goverment Organizations of Russia
For several decades spent nuclear fuel from European countries and from European Russia has been transferred for storage to the Gorno-khimicheskii kombinat (GKhK) factory (in the closed city of Zheleznogorsk, Krasnoyarsk Territory) and to Mayak (in the closed city of Ozersk, Chelyabinsk region). To date, a gigantic amount of nuclear materials and radioactive substances has accumulated here. In the minds of the residents of Europe, the impression is that such a transfer to closed, opaque cities in the Urals and Siberia is a safe solution to the problems. This is not so!
