KIEV, May 24 – Ukraine plans to develop the Novokostiantynivske uranium field (Kirovohrad region) without Russia's participation, Rosatom Director General Sergey Kiriyenko said.
"We returned to the talks a year and a half ago. Unfortunately, we did not see any interest from our Ukrainian partners. Their position was the following: 'Thanks, we're able to develop the field ourselves, we don't need foreign partners.' If they don't need partners, so be it," he said in an interview with the Ekonomicheskaya Pravda publication.
