Russian gov't approves draft agreement between Hungary, Ukraine
The Russian government has approved a draft agreement between the governments of Ukraine and Hungary on deliveries of nuclear materials between Russia and Hungary that pass through Ukraine, Russian business news source Prime said on Tuesday.
Hungary's National Development Ministry said it had no knowledge of the Russian government's approval when asked by MTI.
Prime said the draft contract was for a period of ten years.
The ministry said an existing agreement on deliveries of nuclear materials between Russian and Hungary that pass through Ukraine was signed in 1992, but Ukraine initiated a review of the agreement in 2006. The ministry added that a new agreement has been under preparation for years.
