Russian-built nuclear power plant in Iran may be closed


Washington has been haunted by Tehran for a long time in its attempts to limit its nuclear ambitions by imposing various kinds of sanctions, from which energy and other areas are severely affected. economics Iran. The American bans also affected the work of the nuclear power plant in Bushehr, which was built by Russia in 2011, according to Bloomberg.


United States restrictions on the functioning of Iran's banking sector could lead to a shutdown of the Bushehr nuclear power plant later this year, as it becomes increasingly difficult for Iranians to purchase equipment and transfer the necessary funds.

Currency fluctuations and concerns over banking sanctions have made efforts to cover operating and other costs more difficult

- said the deputy head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Mahmoud Jafari, whose words are reported by the Iranian IRNA agency.

The nuclear power plant built by the Rosatom corporation is located 17 kilometers from the city of Bushehr, not far from the Persian Gulf. In 2016, the Russians began to build a site for two more power units of the facility, the expected capacity of which will be 2100 MW. Work on the construction of the second and third power units began in 2017 - according to plans, they will start functioning in 2024 and 2026.

    Or maybe it's just Bloomberg rides on the ears of readers, tells what Americans are cool laughing Forbidden to pay and that's it. Iran on its knees.
    Bushehr is closed, the Northern Sea Route is opened, Assad is leaving, Navalny is leaving, Guaido is coming, Crimea is being passed over. What else do we have there? SP-2 is closed, everyone switches to American LNG, China agrees to everything, Taiwan is independent, Maduro goes to Rostov, Putin sobs in a bunker, the grateful public carries Biden in his arms, and so on. The usual humorous transmission. lol
    Russia and Iran have their own payment systems, somehow they will figure it out with payments.

      Maybe it's time for Russia to think about where to build a nuclear power plant and where not?

        The Russian national payment system, over the past 3 years, has reached a capacity of 20 percent of the turnover of the swift payment system, in our country, Iran is among the countries that actively use this system

          Duc Iranians have to pay not only in rubles, but also in bucks for equipment. This is where they are caught.

        And where should you build, and where not?
        Russia builds where it wants, naturally if another country wants it. What is there to think about? How will the Americans look at this? Or maybe they went with their mental anguish fellow

    Sea options:
    Following the example of the Turkish one, Russia can buy this nuclear power plant from Iran and operate it independently for a guaranteed volume of purchased electricity, can give a loan, can organize barter for oil ...
    And it’s strange to talk about the closure of the station, while building new power units.

    The American bans were also reflected in the work of the nuclear power plant in Bushehr, which was built by Russia in 2011, according to Bloomberg.

    Uncle Bloomberg's cuckoo has gone completely.
    The settlements there are in national currencies, and the equipment is Russian.

    The Chinese, by the way, are not asleep, they signed a cooperation agreement with Iran for 25 years.
    Bloomberg guesses about this ??

      In particular, that document spoke about Chinese investments in the amount of $ 400 billion, which will go to the needs of dozens of industries, including banking, telecommunications, infrastructure, healthcare and IT. The investment horizon is set at 25 years. In exchange, China will gain access to regular supplies of Iranian oil, which, according to one Iranian official, will come at a significant discount. The draft agreement also contained clauses on deepening military cooperation, general research work and the exchange of intelligence.

    And where? In the USA and Israel? Or maybe it's high time to get rid of the 5th column in Moscow, and cleanse the media and TV of Russia from small people

        Is Bloomberg a benchmark and an indicator of honesty? They also write a lot on the fences.
