Nuclear energy to become the basis of Russia’s economy?

Ivanov said that the biggest problem of Russia’s energy sector was the energy deficit – a problem that had to be solved.

According to him, the new nuclear holding “Atomenergoprom” must unite all of Russia’s nuclear power companies and an executive body taking centralized control over the Russian public nuclear power sector must be formed.

The new “Atomenergoprom” holding will be wholly controlled by the government, reported the Russian internet newspaper UTRO.Ru.
