Russian machinery hidden in vacant German furniture shop

On Thursday 27 June, a German anti-nuclear organisation discovered that Russian state-owned company Rosatom had secretly hidden production machinery for fuel elements in a former furniture shop in an industrial area in Lingen, Germany. These machines are one and a half kilometres from the ANF plant, in a hall rented by Framatome ANF, the operator of the fuel element plant. The activists placed a large sign at the site saying 'Putin's secret nuclear machines'. This is reported by Laka.

Rosatom is working with France's Framatome in a joint venture to produce fuel elements at the Lingen plant. This collaboration has raised more than 10,000 objections. There is interest in the Netherlands in how these machines entered the country, possibly via a Russian ship and a Dutch port with a transit licence, similar to previous shipments of enriched uranium.
