MINSK, 18 April (BelTA) – Belarus has retained its nuclear energy competences, which allows developing nuclear medicine, Pavel Yakovlev, editor-in-chief of the scientific and business outlet “Nuclear Energy 2.0”, told the V Teme [On Point] project on BelTA’s YouTube channel.

“The nuclear power plant in Belarus became the focal point of sci-tech cooperation between our allied countries. At the same time, Belarus already had a rather developed scientific infrastructure. This includes the Sosny Institute that was involved in a number of unique projects back in Soviet times, and transportable nuclear power plants and a spent fuel reprocessing system. In other words, Belarus had and still has solid nuclear energy competences,” said Pavel Yakovlev.

In addition, Belarusian specialists regularly participate in numerous themed conferences and events, including in Russia. “The services and tasks for our two countries are indeed very ambitious. They include tasks related to nuclear medicine. The construction of a cyclotron in Belarus will make it possible to quickly produce modern radiopharmaceuticals to diagnose and treat cancer. This is a very important area of work,” he is convinced.

Pavel Yakovlev added that nuclear medicine in general is reaching a new level. “I hope that thanks to the latest developments, cancer treatment will be faster and more painless,” the expert emphasized.
