Russia will not store the spent nuclear fuel of Bulgaria's Nuclear power plant Kozloduy in the district of Chelyabinsk, Russian Ministry of Nuclear Energy announced July 10, RIA Novosti reported.

The statement refuted earlier reports, according to which Kozloduy spent fuel was to be buried on the territory of the Russian district of Chelyabinsk.

The radioactive waste, that forms during the fuel processing, will be transported back to Bulgaria as previously agreed, the statement of the Russian ministry reads.

The storage of foreign nuclear wastes on the territory of Russia is banned by the local legislature, the statement points out.

Green organizations announced earlier they were to stage protests on the grounds of the agreement which binds Russia to only process the spent nuclear fuel.
