End of Atomic Cooperation

Ukraine broke off cooperation in the field of nuclear energy with the aggressor country

On August 27, at a meeting of the cabinet of ministers of Ukraine, it was decided to break off relations with a country that illegally seized the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, regularly shells it, tortures plant employees and blackmails half of the world with a nuclear catastrophe.

Kyiv and Moscow signed the nuclear cooperation agreement in 1993. The agreement prescribed the conditions for scientific, technical and financial cooperation in the energy field from nuclear power plants. In accordance with the agreement, joint work was envisaged on the development, construction and operation of stations, work on strengthening safety, modernizing the nuclear fuel cycle, handling spent nuclear fuel, etc.

In May of this year, Ukraine also decided to denounce all agreements with member countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States. We remind you that Ukraine was one of the founders of the CIS but was not a member.
