On Thursday, 27 April, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, in Moscow. A myriad of topics were discussed as part of the talks, many of which had to do with increased Japanese investments into Russia and Russia’s ability to provide Japan with its energy supplies. “Peaceful atomic energy” featured as a possible solution to Japan’s energy needs. 

On this basis, Vladimir Putin offered to help clean up the destroyed Fukushima nuclear plant, “with the most modern technology available.”

The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant was destroyed during the tsunami of 2011, following the Tōhoku earthquake on 11 March of that year. It is thought that the plant is annually leaking many tonnes of radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean.
