Implementation: The Rostov Nuclear Power Plant, under construction in southern Russia, has been the subject of intense public opposition since 1990. Protesters claim the Rostov plant is not required by regional consumers as present and future energy needs in the region are covered by the existing facilities. The Rostov Plant design, protesters claim, is ecologically unsound and the chosen location for construction, adjacent to the town of Volgodonsk, is completely unsuitable. The campaign against the Rostov Plant attracted wide attention in Russia, when pro-nuclear thugs staged a brutal attack on protesters blockading a road to the construction site in the summer of 1996-1997. The main goal of the protesters now is to prove publicly and internationally that the Rostov Plant is dangerous, ecologically damaging and economically unsound.
