Rector of the Kharkiv National University Vil Bakirov picked up the torch. “For Ukraine, nuclear power is very important today, because it is more than 50% of electric power supply. This area has a lot of process and political problems: not all countries respond to it positively. However, whatever the case, at this time Ukraine cannot completely stop using nuclear power plants. Therefore, we should improve them, invest in their modernization. Highly skilled experts guaranteed”, said the rector.
