Uranium ore extraction a step toward energy independence - Tymoshenko
Nuclear power for Ukraine is a strategic sphere
Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko is confident that nuclear power for Ukraine is a strategic sphere, according to the government’s press-office.
This was disclosed by the PM at the daughter enterprise “Enterprise management which is under construction on the basis of the Novokostiantynivsk uranium-ore deposits” where the first tub of uranium ore had been extracted today.
Yulia Tymoshenko informed that today’s opening of the uranium ore extraction is the beginning of building our own nuclear-fuel cycle of the country. “This will guarantee energy independence of the state,” the Prime Minister noted.
Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko is sure that due to this extraction Ukraine can satisfy a need for uranium by 100% instead of the present 30%.
This, according to the Head of Government, will provide the country with energy for many centuries.
