Radioactive Waste and Spent Nuclear Fuel Management in Russia: View of Non-Governmental Organizations
One of the areas of state policy in the sphere of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel management is provision of environmental safety for the population. On the basis of general legal principles the state policy of Russia in the sphere of radioactive waste (RW) and spent nuclear fuel (SNF) management should not contradict the fundamental rights and legitimate interests of its citizens. The right to favourable environment, ecological and radiation safety, sustainable use of natural resources belongs both to the current and future generations. These rights are legally important and they must determine the essence of adopted normative acts. For this purpose the state policy of RW and SNF management cannot contradict the national environmental policy.
