ARTICLES

A view on Russia’s nuclear power strategy at the present stage – including the formation of a two-component system including fast reactors and the possibility of fuel cycle closure on the basis of thermal reactors – as well as on the prospects for using thorium and including thermonuclear neutron sources in nuclear power in the distant future is discussed. The key problems of the impending state of implementation of the country’s nuclear power strategy are examined.
