The objectives of the development of reactor technologies for transitioning to two-component nuclear power with thermal and fast reactors as well as the issues arising in the analysis of development scenarios, including the uncertainty of the resource base and technical-economic performance, are discussed. It is shown that attempts to detail the structure of the nuclear power system in the second half of the 21st century do not yield unambiguous results, giving compelling reasons for strategic decisions. It is suggested that future work on strategic development be focused on the horizon periods of key decisions concerning the adoption of new reactor technologies.
