“We will sign the loan with Euroatom at the end of the year and will
invest around $1 billion within next two years into improving the safety
of our nuclear power plants. They have already passed all tests, but we
are moving forward to make them the most modern plants in the world,”
the minister said.
At the same time, Boiko did not specify the amount of the loan.
As reported, Euratom and EBRD earlier planned to provide financing of
up to EUR 300 million each to the state-run nuclear power operator
Energoatom for safety upgrades at Ukrainian NPPs.
