Bushehr Completion Soon

ST. PETERSBURG — Preparations for connecting the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant in Iran to the grid are proceeding according to schedule, Rosatom chief Sergei Kiriyenko said Saturday on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

"We are in the final phase of the work now, and we are working in the turbine room. We have some flexibility in the time when we can launch the plant. This is OK, because if even tiniest doubts about security arise at any moment, we stop work. But we are moving well now, even without these allowances being taken into account," Kiriyenko said.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
