    MOSCOW, March 3 - RIA Novosti. Russia's First Deputy Minister of Atomic Energy Igor Borovkov stated at the 2nd All-Russia energy forum that the inventories of uranium and plutonium, accumulated by Russia, would ensure stable development of the country's nuclear power industry for next thirty years.

    He said that "the accumulated reserves of uranium and plutonium must ensure stable existence and stable development of Russia's nuclear power industry till the end of the 2030s." Mr. Borovkov went on to say that, if the economy develops sufficiently, demand for nuclear electricity will reach 270-300 billion kilowatt-hours by the year of 2020.

    He specified that "this implies an increase of demand for nuclear power plant's electricity by 80 per cent."
