This press statement is issued by UNF 2 July 2022.
We, the Ukrainian Nuclear Forum, urge the European Parliament to support the inclusion of nuclear in the CDA of the taxonomy regula-tion. More nuclear means less gas and therefore less dependence on Russia. A independency that we as a sovereign country are fighting for since the invasion started.
The more investments are allowed and encouraged in the nuclear sector in the EU, the more the EU will ensure its security of supply, so precious in nowadays context.
Background: The CDA provides for the inclusion of nuclear energy in the tax-onomy regulation and establish criteria for investment in nuclear power plants.
