Part of its campaign against bringing spent nuclear fuel to Russia, the Environmental Protection international group will give a series of lectures and consultations in Japan. According to the group's press centre, Vladimir Slivyak, its co-Chairman, intends to meet with various Japanese authorities and representatives of nuclear energy industry in 7 Japanese cities. The action will be supported by the Japanese Green Action and the Centre of Nuclear Information. Mr. Slivyak said the objective of his group was to persuade a possibly large number of countries to abstain from sending spent nuclear fuel to Russia. In 2001, similar actions were organised by the group in Germany and Taiwan.
