Moscow (Sputnik) Dec 10, 2014
Moscow is waiting for the Indian government to allot a site for a new Russian-designed nuclear power plant and is ready to build up to 25 power generation units in the country, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday.
In an interview to the PTI news agency ahead of his visit to India on December 11, Putin said that the Russian-Indian project to build two units of the Kudankulam NPP, the world's only nuclear power plant meeting all "post-Fukushima" safety requirements, goes according to schedule.
"Apart from building new energy units of the NPP "Kudankulam", we await the decision of the Indian government to allot a site for construction of a new Russian-designed nuclear power plant," he said.
"Our resources enable us to build up to 25 energy units in India," the Russian president went on, adding that "even these units may not meet the needs of dynamically developing economy of India."
