Text of report by Russian NTV on 24 October

[Presenter Aleksey Sukhanov] At this very moment, activists of the Greenpeace environmental movement are starting a protest demonstration in Novosibirsk. They are demanding that the Russian Atomic Energy Ministry abandon negotiations with Bulgaria, Hungary and Slovakia on transporting nuclear waste on the Trans-Siberian railroad across Krasnoyarsk Territory. The ministry has stated that this is absolutely safe and at the same time profitable. Also, the Atomic Energy Ministry believes that if these Eastern European states use Russian nuclear fuel, then it is Russia`s job to recycle it.

[Bulat Nigmatulin, captioned as Russian deputy Atomic Energy Minister] Everything is going according to plan. We have here all the resources we need. The main thing is that this is profitable for the country, profitable for Krasonyarsk Territory, the plant [where the fuel will be recycled] and the almost 6,000 people who are involved with this hi-tech process.
