Bulgaria, Russia and Ukraine are to re-sign an updated agreement on the transit of nuclear fuel for Kozloduy power plant.

The accord settles the route of fuel transit through Ukrainian territory, Russian news agency ITAR-TASS reported.

Earlier this month fresh nuclear fuel deliveries for Bulgaria were guaranteed until 2020, with an extension of the contract.

The existing ten-year agreement for fuel transportation through Ukraine and Moldova will be extended with another ten years, the Russian agency said.

On the territory of Russia and Ukraine the special loads will be transported via railway transport, while from Ukraine to Bulgaria - via water transport, the document says. Nuclear loads will be re-laded at the Ismail Harbour, Ukraine.

The agreement has been prepared since 2002 and lasted for over three years because of the negotiation procedures between Ukraine and Russia.
