According to the Ukrainian Nuclear Society, the Minister of Energy and Environmental Protection Oleksiy Orzhel came to the government with the initiative to dismiss the Head of Energoatom.
Yuri Nedashkovsky was appointed President of Energoatom in March 2015 by Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. Prior to that, he had led this company several times: from July 2000 to June 2002; in 2005; from June 2012 to August 2012. In 2006-2008 he was Deputy Minister of Fuel and Energy.
The state enterprise National Atomic Energy Generating Company Energoatom was established in October 1996. The company operates four operating nuclear power plants in Ukraine, which operate 15 nuclear power units with a total installed capacity of 13,835 MW.
