A new issue of the Security Index journal was published


MOSCOW, JANUARY 26, 2015. PIR PRESS – A new issue of the Security Index journal #4 (111), Winter 2014 was published.

The latest issue of the Security Index journal is partly devoted to the development of the global nuclear energy sector and nuclear infrastructure. Against the backdrop of the oil-and-gas needle and amid the continued devaluation of the Russian currency, the Russian nuclear energy sector seems to offer what may well be the only tangible, comprehensive, and carefully thought-out answer to economic upheavals. This particular branch of the Russian high-tech sector is not a prototype but a working engine. “The caravan of the Russian nuclear energy sector is moving forward”, says Mikhail Lysenko. His conclusion is borne out (with specific international markets cited as examples) by Hoang Anh Thuan, Yuri Busurin, and Aleksandr Bychkov. Meanwhile, the Iranian ambassador to Moscow, Mehdi Sanaei, paints a detailed picture of Iran’s expectations from a new wave of nuclear energy cooperation with Russia.
