Russia plans to build at least six nuclear units in India in 20 years – Putin
Moscow, Dec 25 (ANI): Russia President Vladimir Putin plans to build at least six new nuclear power units in India in the next 20 years. Speaking after talks with visiting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Putin also said that Moscow and New Delhi were successfully cooperating in production of Brahmos missiles and planned to produce jointly a new type of jet fighter and transport aircraft. Prime Minister Modi might offer Russia a site in Andhra Pradesh to build six nuclear reactors of 1,200 megawatts (MW) each. New Delhi has turned to Russia as U.S. firm General Electric and Westinghouse, a U.S.-based unit of Japan’s Toshiba , are still weighing an entry into India’s nuclear energy sector because of a law that makes reactor suppliers liable in case of an accident. For Russia, India offers an alternative, fast-growing outlet for its exports as sanctions imposed by the West squeeze the economy.
