Over 200 ROSATOM executives donate money to fight coronavirus pandemic

Communications Department of ROSATOM, PUBLISHED 26.04.2020

From the earliest stages of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, ROSATOM has mobilised its scientific, technical, organizational and human resources to fight the spread of COVID-19.

At present, ROSATOM is providing personal protective equipment not only to its on-site personnel, but also to the residents of the cities of its presence.

The company is working closely with Russia's Federal Biomedical Agency, strengthening the technical and material resources available to its medical institutions, and supporting a mass volunteer movement in the cities of its operations.

Thousands of volunteers from atomic cities have been equipped with PPE to facilitate their work helping veterans and the elderly.

At the same time, the coronavirus problem is a countrywide problem, which is why ROSATOM's management, including its Director General, Alexey Likhachev, his deputies, the heads of divisions and enterprises (totally over two hundred executives) have decided to join the Russia-wide mutual assistance campaign #WeAreTogether and transfer their monthly salary to the fundraising effort.

Many other ROSATOM employees, as well as the employees of various subsidiaries, are also joining the executives' initiative and supporting the fundraising effort according to their means.

I think our members have understood that one of the biggest issues going forward is making sure that we have a new generation of young people that can take up the work of developing, deploying and operating nuclear facilities in the future.

Despite the benefits, small modular reactors also have disadvantages. In this paper we want to highlight and explore how SMRs challenge the existing nonproliferation regime. Finally, we draw conclusions from the analysis.
