Over the past two decades, Russia has undertaken significant efforts to revive cooperation programmes with those countries that were their friends and allies in the Soviet era. One of the drivers of such economic partnerships is the world’s largest nuclear power concern, Rosatom. The large-scale project to build Egypt’s first and Africa’s second nuclear power plant, El Dabaa, has become a landmark for the African continent.
In addition to the fact that the Russians have undertaken to build a modern nuclear power plant in record time, which will help the country of the pyramids to solve most of its problems with energy supply. One of the important advantages of the Russian concern over its Western competitors is its possession of the full cycle of nuclear technologies, co-financing of projects, and readiness to share its competencies and technologies.
