Ukraine: Russia-Ukraine War and Nuclear Energy
(Updated 20 June 2022)

• In February 2022, Russia launched a military offensive against Ukraine.
• On 24 February Ukraine informed the IAEA that Russian forces had taken control of all facilities of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Control of the site was returned to Ukrainian personnel on 31 March.
• In the early hours of 4 March the Zaporizhzhia plant in southeastern Ukraine became the first operating civil nuclear power plant to come under armed attack. Fighting between forces overnight resulted in a projectile hitting a training building within the site of the six-unit plant. Russian forces then took control of the plant.
• The six reactors were not affected and there was no release of radioactive material.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is closely monitoring developments in the country with respect to its nuclear facilities and is providing regular updates on the situation."

Atomkraft im Energiemix: Treffen der G7

"Ein Ende der Stromgewinnung aus Atomkraft streben die sieben großen Industriestaaten Deutschland, USA, Kanada, Großbritannien, Frankreich, Japan und Italien hingegen nicht gemeinsam an. 'Jene Länder, die sich für ihre Nutzung entscheiden, bekräftigten die Rolle der Kernenergie in ihrem Energiemix', heißt es in der Abschlusserklärung (PDF). Im Gegensatz zu Deutschland bekennen sich unter anderem Frankreich und Großbritannien zur Atomkraft und betreiben ihren Ausbau.

Bei der Atomkraft gehe es darum, erschwingliche kohlenstoffarme Energie bereitzustellen, heißt es weiter in der Erklärung. Mit ihrer Grundlastenergie und Netzflexibilität soll Atomkraft zur Energieversorgungssicherheit beitragen. Fortschrittliche Nukleartechnik wie kleine modulare Reaktoren (SMR) könnten innerhalb des nächsten Jahrzehnts wahrscheinlich dazu beitragen, dass mehr Länder weltweit Atomkraft als Teil ihres Energiemixes übernehmen. Die G7 betonen, dass die höchsten Standards der nuklearen Sicherheit für alle Länder wichtig seien." (Heise Online 27.5. 2022 / Klima-, Energie- und Umweltminister in Berlin)

Das Nuclear Studies Institute in Washington

"The Nuclear Studies Institute was founded in 1995 at American University in Washington, D.C. as a component of the American University College of Arts and Sciences. The purpose of the Institute is to educate American University graduate and undergraduate students, as well as the general public, about the key points of nuclear history, nuclear culture in the United States, and the threats still posed by nuclear weapons in the modern world." (...)

"The Institute participates in the Nuclear Education Project; a worldwide effort to improve access to teaching and learning materials regarding the history of the nuclear arms race and the ongoing movement to curb the proliferation of nuclear weapons. The Nuclear Education Project was founded in 2004 by Dr. Peter Kuznick, Mayor Tadatoshi Akiba, Dr. John W. Dower of MIT and Dr. Mark Selden.
