Publication: Monitor Volume: 1 Issue: 32
Armenian officials will begin powering up the Metzamor nuclear power station June 19 but will not insert the nuclear fuel rods until later this summer, Noyan Tapan news agency said June 12. Russian radio reported June 10 that Russian prime minister Viktor Chernomyrdin will attend the ceremonies. Russia has given Yerevan a $12.5 million dollar credit to help restart the plant, which could supply up to 50 percent of Armenia’s energy needs.
