Reclamation of the uranium-tailing dump near Min-Kush village in Naryn region of Kyrgyzstan has started, the Director of the Center for State Regulation of Environmental Protection and Ecological Safety under the State Agency for Environmental Protection and Forestry, Baigabyl Tolongutov, reported.
According to him, the reclamation was started by Rosatom (Russia). It plans to spend 1,128 million rubles on the work.
As Baigabyl Tolongutov said, the international company began assessing the impact on the environment at the tailing dump near Mailuu-Suu town in Jalal-Abad region. The European Union has allocated 2.5 million euro for the design works and subsequent reclamation, as well as for the assessment.
“A master plan has been drawn up for donors, that is, a rationale for where and what needs to be done in Central Asia. In total, our country needs 100 million euro, 17.5 million of which have been already allocated by the European Union,” Baigabyl Tolongutov said.
He stressed that there was a special account where donors would gradually transfer the money, and the reclamation would be carried out in parallel to it. (24.kg/Ukrainian metal)
