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

The accord settles the route of fuel transit through Ukrainian territory.

According to the new agreement concerning Russian and Ukraine territory, the special loads will be transported via railway, while those from Ukraine to Bulgaria would be via water route. The nuclear fuel would be reloaded at the Ukrainian Danube Harbour, Ismail.

The existing ten-year agreement for fuel transportation through Ukraine and Moldova will be extended by another ten years.

The trilateral negotiations have stretched over three years owing to the difficulty in finding agreement between Ukraine and Russia.
