Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom will help Japan in handling the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant (NPP) and will be engaged in the nuclear control plan, according to the company's CEO Aleksey Likhachev. "We have been engaged by Japan to implement the nuclear accident management plan at the Fukushima NPP. We have won two tenders and are going ahead," Likhachev told Russia-24 news channel. In September 2017, Rosatom's First Deputy CEO Kirill Komarov said that Rosatom offered their Japanese counterparts assistance in cleaning up at the Fukushima NPP and in decommissioning other unsafe nuclear power plants. That followed Russian President Vladimir Putin's announcement that Russia and Japan will start joint efforts to clean up after the accident.
