The state corporation received the draft decree for negotiation, the letter points out.
According to the reply, it was declined due to the lack of detailed research on the changes necessary to maintain secure activities of Rosatom Group companies located in Zarechny; no evaluation of potential social and economic consequences of the decision; and no draft of state support measures for the city’s residents if it loses the closed status.
