Russia’s Rosatom ceases its activities in Czechia

The Russian state nuclear concern Rosatom has definitively ceased its activities Czechia, a year and a quarter after the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Czech news Agency reported on Monday.

The domestic branch of the company has now been deleted from the commercial register, with all its employees having left earlier. The communications agency that worked for Rosatom has also ceased its activities.

Rosatom had previously bid for the construction of a new unit at the Dukovany nuclear power plant, but was excluded from the tender by the government after it emerged that Russia’s military intelligence was involved in the 2014 explosion at the munitions storage facility in Vrbětice.
