There will be one more nuclear repository in Europe


At a time when a serious and long-term problem is growing in the EU - the disposal of radioactive waste from nuclear power plants operating there, the Czech authorities decided to make their own contribution to this problem.


Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic Karel Havlicek said in an interview with Pravo newspaper that the Russian state corporation Rosatom will be officially excluded from the tender for the construction of a new power unit at the Dukovany NPP. The contract is valued at approximately € 6 billion.

Initially, Russian Rosatom, Chinese CGNP, American Westinghouse, French EDF and South Korean KHNP participated in the construction tender. But on the recommendations of the secret services (probably from the CIA), the Chinese have already been excluded from the project.

On Russian terms, the construction of a new unit of the Dukovany NPP was planned at the expense of a loan from the Russian Federation by Rosatom. Now the "wise" Czechs, led by Czech Prime Minister Andrei Babis, have decided to finance the project for the construction of a new power unit at the expense of the Czech state credit. State participation will be about 70%, the rest will be provided by the Czech state-owned company CEZ. Well, the contractor for the Czechs, in all likelihood, will be the American company Westinghouse Electric Corporation - Westinghouse.

Everything would be nothing but one small detail. The American Westinghouse, unlike the Russian Rosatom, does not take back its spent nuclear fuel for nuclear power plants, but leaves the importing country of this fuel to deal with the remaining radioactive waste on its own! And what to do with spent fuel for nuclear power plants - many world nuclear scientists are still racking their brains.

The Americans offered to send this waste by space rockets directly to the Sun - they say, nothing will come to the Sun from this! This project was stopped only by its high cost. Well, launching a nuclear charge somewhere into space will not rust for the Americans. Whether it is Project A119 or Study of Research Lunar Flights - a secret plan to drop an atomic bomb on the lunar surface, developed by the US Air Force in the 1950s. Either Elon Musk will decide to change the climate of Mars by detonating several nuclear bombs at the poles of this planet.

One of the German physicists in the 1950s suggested not flying far, but dumping nuclear waste from aircraft directly to Antarctica ... Like, hot containers with waste will melt all the ice around them, gradually fall to the ground and cooling down due to this, they will be covered with ice again. But the project did not pass due to fears of extensive flooding due to the possible intense melting of ice.

Since the 1980s, Europe has begun to arrange the disposal of nuclear fuel in surface and underground bunkers. The leader here is France, which accumulates spent fuel from 58 nuclear reactors, which generate 75% of all electricity produced in the country.

And who will store the waste of the new, planned for construction, power unit of the Dukovany NPP? The French are unlikely to agree. Their 58 nuclear reactors are enough for them, and France, after all, is not rubber! This means that we will have to equip a nuclear waste storage facility in our own small cozy Czech Republic, between breweries and hotels for tourists.

In response to the exclusion from the tender for the construction of a new power unit of the Dukovany NPP, Russia should have excluded the supply of beer or beer concentrate from the Czech Republic. In addition to the actual Russian beer, there are German, Dutch, Belgian, Danish, and a lot of other foreign brands on sale. If Czech beer disappears from the shelves for some time, the mass consumer will not even notice it, but Czech producers will. They will notice and ask their own political parties - And whose interests are you, the rulers, defending, our Czechs or someone else's? Why not sit on the bench after the next election?

And if a nuclear waste storage facility does appear in the Czech Republic (well, it’s not the Americans who will take back nuclear waste), then over time the Russians will have to give up Czech beer anyway due to fear for their lives from a possible radioactive drink.

These are the prospects for the Czechs, who are clearly impatient to play the role of the Bulgarians who shot themselves in the foot twice, or even more.

Initially, the Bulgarians froze the construction of the new Belene NPP by the Russian Rosatom. In 2008, a division of Rosatom, Atomstroyexport, began construction of this nuclear power plant. In 2012, under pressure from Washington and Brussels, the project was stopped, and Bulgaria had to pay Russia more than 600 million euros for the work already done and the equipment supplied. Now Bulgaria has decided to abandon the completion of the new NPP "Belene", and to use the equipment previously supplied by Rosatom for the construction of a new reactor at the operating nuclear power plant "Kozloduy". This option was proposed by the American Westinghouse, which will sell to Bulgaria Technology for the power unit and will accompany the construction.

Congratulations to the EU for another possible nuclear burial ground!

The second Bulgarian crossbow is the rejection of South Stream, a gas pipeline from Russia, thanks to which Bulgaria would become a European gas hub and receive an annual income of about $ 400 million. In addition, according to V.V. Putin, the Bulgarians lost another $ 3 billion in investment and thousands of high-paying jobs.

But on April 17, 2014, under pressure from the EU and the United States, the Bulgarians gave up this money. But their eternal enemies, the Turks, from whom Russia liberated the "brothers" in the 19th century, happily agreed to the Russian proposal. Now they are counting the money that could be in the Bulgarian pockets and perhaps with this money they are going to build a new channel "Istanbul" to the Black Sea, not far from the Bulgarian shores, the negatives from which will first of all be received by the Bulgarians, as the closest neighbors of the Turks. And the EU and the US will only grin at the losses they brought to the Bulgarians, and build NATO bases there in order to further isolate the impoverished Bulgarians from the generous Russia.

And so, summing up the above, we can conclude that in the EU there may be more than one nuclear repository, but two more! Greetings to Greta Thunberg!

    The article is solid and the language is good, with humor and subtle irony! Respect to Vladimir!
    One small clarification, in the first half of the 80s, French nuclear weapons were exported for reprocessing in the USSR.
    On the Soviet side, the contract holder was V / O "Techsnabexport" MVT, on the French side was the firm of the French Communist Party "Sifal". smile

    Well, how will you go on living now, playing the role of "used contraceptives" by the Czechs? Although you are not accustomed to licking the anus first to Adolf, and now to the "Great Striped Father from Fashington", this is the fate of lackeys ...

    The article is really good. The question remains: what will happen next? Fistingvantuz will not be able to build a good one - technologies are a generation behind Russian ones. However, both Czechs and Bulgarians cannot decide for themselves. If rape is inevitable ...

    There is one more point that the author does not mention. Unfortunately, as a result of the aforementioned "crossbows", Russia is losing almost more "self-mutilating". Russia's zone of influence continues to shrink. As a result of the benefits lost by the Bulgarians, they were acquired by the Turks, who are now selling weapons to the American-controlled Ukraine, shit in Karabakh, and oppose us in Syria and Libya. The Istanbul channel is primarily a geopolitical threat specifically for Russia. The Americans simply "at the snap of their fingers" knocked the Czech Republic out of the number of countries with which it was possible to have more or less adequate political and economic interaction. Of course, Russia does not benefit from this, to put it mildly.
    Everyone loses, except for overseas manipulators. And gloating over the damage and lost benefits of Bulgarians and Czechs does not improve the situation for Russia.

    New songs for lovers of quarrels with Russia. "Belomors"

    Polonium shines in the river under the moon,
    I'll scoop it up with my hand
    And Biocadavr sneaks up at night-
    Probably coming after me.
    And Biocadavr sneaks up at night-
    Inaudibly follows me.

    My iron hurts something
    And Geiger sings all night.
    Eyes are tearing, itching under the arm-
    I guess I need iodine.
    And I feel - you can't do without iodine,
    I guess I need iodine.

    A thermonuclear dawn rises above you,
    You are my dear side.
    Poisonous nightingale sings infrasound
    You will not let me go anywhere!

    Here the predatory dill stands in the way -
    I will pass by him.
    A special enzyme contains dill
    This one does not grow in the garden.

    This one does not grow in the garden.

    A giant mosquito flies across the sky
    And a rooster howls in the forest.
    Don't go to the forest, hares live there,
    Recently they ate two.

    Smog thickens, darkens in the eyes
    And a new day is coming.
    And a stingy tear burns with acid-
    Dear mutogen.
    And a stingy tear burns with sour-
    Dear mutogen.

    I will return to myself, to my native sarcophagus,
    I will take off my protective suit,
    And I'll throw a handful of strontium into the hearth,
    And quietly in a coffin I will fall asleep.

    Actually, this is not the most essential detail.
    In the case of cooperation with Rosatom, the localization of this project in the Czech Republic would reach 70%. Skoda - Nuclear Engineering has a long history of cooperation with Rosatom, which often orders some of the equipment from the Czech Republic. The experience of cooperation with the Czech Republic (with Czechoslovakia still) has more than 70 years. Skoda is even capable of making reactor vessels for Russian units.
    But the Czech leadership does not need money or jobs for Czech workers. The main thing is to wave to the owners.
    And in this case it is very easy to calculate, in dollars, how much Russophobia costs the Czechs.

    Greetings ardent greetings! And there is no need to give up the supply of Czech beer to the Russian Federation!
