 The regulator has lifted the ban on the transportation of nuclear and
other radioactive materials through Ukraine, according to the document
signed on March 6 by First Deputy Head of the State Inspectorate for
Nuclear Regulation of Ukraine Mykhailo Hashev.

The ban was introduced in late January. Russian Deputy Prime Minister
Dmitry Rogozin said a day earlier that Ukraine has enough fuel for
March-April. “Ukrainian NPPs (nuclear power plans) are stocked up with
fuel for March and April. So far there is a ban on this sort of fuel
movement because of the unstable situation in the country,” he said. “We
have problems sending nuclear fuel via Ukraine to our partners in east
Europe, and there are issues associated with fuel supplies to Ukraine’s
nuclear power plants,” Rogozin said.

Our TVEL company can solve the problem of rail transit through
Ukraine by transporting the fuel by air, Russian state nuclear
corporation Rosatom said.
