Commenting article: Shut-down Looms for Bulgaria's Nuclear Safety Institute

Russia will sue Bulgaria over unpaid USD 1.35 M owed for the removal of used nuclear fuel, according to Prof. Yordan Stamenov, Director of the Institute for Nuclear Research and Nuclear Energy (INRNE) at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.

The deadline to pay for the 2008 services of transporting and burying the fuel near the Russian town of Ozersk is September 1, Stamenov says, adding the Institute needs another BGN 9 M by 2012 to carry out the reconstruction of the research reactor.

According to the Professor, BGN 2 M annually have been regularly slated for nuclear safety between 2001 and 2009, and this is the first year INRNE did not receive any money. He said the transported fuel was State property thus Russia will sue the Bulgarian State, not the Institute.
