Furthermore, Minister Miškov appreciated the support of the Russian side in signing an agreement of three parties on transport of nuclear fuel between Slovakia and Russia, via Ukraine, which guarantees fluent fuel supplies for our nuclear power plants,” added the Slovak ministry, as quoted by the SITA newswire. The ministry considers the Russian market to be important for Slovak exports of goods and services.
