Russia calls India a key partner in nuclear says, India to soon get next-generation fuel

Russia-India Nuclear Relations: Russia and India have maintained a robust partnership in the nuclear energy sector for decades, a relationship that continues to evolve and strengthen with each passing year. This collaboration, grounded in mutual strategic interests and shared technological advancements, has significant implications for both nations’ energy security and geopolitical strategies.

Recently, calling India a key partner in the nuclear area, Russian state nuclear corporation-Rosatom head Alexey Likhachev said that India will get next-generation nuclear fuel this summer. 


Atomic Energy Commission chairman Ajit Kumar Mohanty was hosted by the Russian Atomic Chief in Siberia's Tomsk region in Russia on Thursday. The Russian Atomic Chief showed Mohanty the fourth-generation site that will host the safest atomic reactor in history, as per reports. 

Moreover, the head of Rosatom Likhachev also praised the cooperation between the two nations, calling India a key partner in the nuclear area.

Leaders from the Russian and Indian nuclear industries visited the Pilot Demonstration Energy Complex (PDEC) construction site in Seversk, Tomsk region, as part of the "Proryv" ("Breakthrough") strategic industry project, according to Rosatom.

During the visit, they engaged in an extensive discussion on potential areas for future Russian-Indian cooperation in the nuclear sector.

"We are ready to serious expansion of the cooperation with India in the field of using nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. This includes first of all, serial construction of the Russian-designed high-capacity nuclear power units at a new site in India, implementation of land-based and floating low-power generation projects, cooperation in the nuclear fuel cycle area, as well as in the field of non-power applications of nuclear technologies", Alexey Likhachev said.

Atomic Energy Commission chairman Mohanty is on a visit to Tomsk, Russia, accompanied by the Indian ambassador to Russia, Vinay Kumar.
