Submission + - Russia set to extend life of nuclear reactors past (

Harperdog writes: Yikes! Russia is extending the lifetime of nuclear power reactors beyond their engineered life span of 30 years, including the nation's oldest reactors: first-generation VVERs and RBMKs, the Chernobyl-type reactors.
This goes against existing Russian law, because the projects have not undergone environmental assessments. Scary article, well-written.
