Nuclear Cleanup Help

MOSCOW -- The Nuclear Power Ministry isn't expecting any more federal money for cleaning up contamination from weapons production, so it is planning to seek outside help, the top nuclear official said Thursday.

Nuclear Power Minister Yevgeny Adamov also insisted that Russia has no plans to develop new types of nuclear arms, Interfax reported.

In a meeting with environmentalists, Adamov said the ministry would try to raise funds to clean up contaminated areas because it wasn't counting on the next federal budget to include any money for cleanup.
