The foreign minister has revealed that Hungary has taken another delivery of fuel rods for the Paks nuclear power plant by air.
Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said on Wednesday that the fuel rods were delivered by Volga-Dnepr on a flight that passed over Belarus, Poland and Slovakia before arriving in Hungary. Hungary got its first air delivery of fuel rods for the Paks plant about two weeks earlier. Normally, the fuel is delivered by train across Ukraine, but Hungary was forced to find an alternative route because of the war. The Paks plant accounts for around half of Hungary’s electricity generation.
