U.S. Senators to inspect CTR Program implementation in the Urals


CHELYABINSK, August 30 (RIA Novosti) - Two American Senators, Richard Lugar and Sam Nunn, who initiated the Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR) Program will visit the Mayak nuclear fuel reprocessing plant in Chelyabinsk, a source in the plant's press office told RIA Novosti.

The Senators will visit facilities reprocessing nuclear submarine fuel waste.

Lugar and Nunn will visit Russia's Urals Region on the 15th anniversary of the CTR Program. A total of 26 nuclear submarines have been utilized over those 15 years owing to the U.S. contribution, Russia's Federal Nuclear Power Agency (Rosatom) said.

A $120 million project financed by the United States has been completed recently. In particular, the U.S. provided $15 million as part of its technological assistance for the construction of a nuclear materials storage tank at the Mayak facility.
