The European Unit doesn’t agree with such a proposal”. “I think that if Vladimir Putin personally states that Russia is ready to settle the problem of the nuclear waste utilisation, the money to lift Kursk will be allocated before Duma ratifies the programme of the utilisation”, Praaning said. So, if Russia agrees, the money will be found immediately. The operation will not be postponed, and all the problems will disappear.
