    Default Nuclear power cooperation between Russia and the DR?

    Dominican Republic, Russia to cooperate on nuclear energy

    Moscow.- The Russian nuclear energy corporation Rosatom and Dominican Republic’s Energy and Mines Ministry on Tuesday signed the first memorandum on bilateral cooperation in the field of nuclear energy.

    “The memorandum is the first cooperation document between the two countries in the field of peaceful use of nuclear energy,” said the Russian agency RIA Nóvosti.

    According to the Russian entity, the document lays the groundwork for establishing cooperation in various directions, in particular, in the development of the nuclear infrastructure in the Dominican Republic.

    Please tell me where the Russians plan to erect one in DR and I will make sure to be the farthest possible distance away from it given their record of radioactive releases

    Ooouch, Chernodominic, no place in the island will be safe....!

    Not just from the 80s these Russians recently had a disaster two months ago with a lot of radioactive escaping to the atmosphere and they tried to cover it up....

    If it's proposed near a populated area I think ringing the site with burning tires would send a message of protest in an election year

    Russians are becoming more like Chinese now, they realize they should expand economically to be a super power, learned from the best, US of A.

    Russia has offered to sell Saudi Arabia their missiles for protection and even offered to go and fix their refinery this week... !!!? lol

    Earthquakes and Nuclear Power stations do not harmonize with longivity.
    I believe Canada has the best record for installation of Nuclear Power ; but then again I am not cognizant of the USA Record.

    Maybe the only Nuclear agency that would discuss the matter came from Russia.
    It is actually cheaper and safer to install wind generators and solar power......
    My opinion is that Nuclear Power is pas say!
    What maintenance?
    Just look at how the electrical grid is being ''maintained at present !!!
    Maybe this is just a bad joke.

    DR GOv should pay attention to the dwindling availability of the one most important element needed for life''WATER".
    AH!
    I am just frustrated with having to search for water on the north shore.
    None from the Water Commission and very competitive with the local well in Luperon.
    Time is up,,,, getting off thread.

    We know you can't use saltwater to cool a reactor. If the DR can't keep the fresh water supply flowing now and provide reliable backup electricity for the cooling pumps what makes them think they have any hope of pulling this plan off without irradiating all of the Caribbean?

    I'm not sure caliche is the best medium for storing spent fuel rods for 40,000 years or 1600 generations...

    Stick with what you have demonstrated you can pull off - 2000 dedicated people peddling stationary bikes with attached dynamos.
