It looks like Russia is solving some of its difficult energy problems in the far outlying reaches of the country with cutting edge floating nuclear power stations. This should make the russophobes who have been calling Russians derogatory names paractially foam at the mouth with madness and venom. Wonder how the western media will spin it.

The strategy behind floating nuclear plants is that no one will dare sink them.

Very clever.

Looks like you got a degree in it and you know more than we do.

And of course you know that at present the nuclear technologies are advanced enough to be secure, Russian those at least.

They are only as secure as the people who are in charge of them !
That is the problem.

That could also solve the problem of countries who are seeking to get nuclear power for civilian purposes but are constantly denied, threatened, blackmailes, harassed or else by the USA!!

Iran, North Korea or anyone else could buy one of those flotting Russian nuclear reactor power station and have it anchored along their coast. Problem solved!!

Cutting edge technology? Last time i checked the russian gov't didn't even want to put money down for insurance purposes for the nord stream in case something went wrong. What are they scared of if their technology is so cutting edge?

And how the hell are they gonna dispose of nuclear waste? They wont just dump it in the sea just like the soviet nuclear subs did during cold war wont they? The russians are very cost efficient and really dont care about the natural environment.

Your kind of mentality "It's Russian, so I MUST attack it" show how bitter and backwards you are!!

How do Americans or Canada solve their nuclear waste problems? I don't think they are more clever than anyone else in that field.

Until 1990, the Soviet Navy routinely dumped radioactive waste in Far Eastern and Arctic waters. There were 13 areas of nuclear waste dumps in Arctic seas and 10 areas off-shore in the Russian Far East, according to Russian environmentalists Alexander Emelianenkov and Andrei Zolotkov. Their data suggest that between 1964 and 1991 the former Soviet Union dumped the total of 4,900 containers of solid nuclear waste in Arctic seas, and 6,868 containers in the Pacific. Furthermore, the Russian navy simply sank 57 vessels filled with nuclear waste. Sixteen decommissioned reactors were also sent to the deep, including six with unloaded fuel.

What proof do you have liar that canada or US is dumping nuclear waste in its lakes?
