Robert Habeck, Vice-Chancellor of Germany and Federal German Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) suggested that sanctions be imposed on nations that import uranium (the nuclear fuel) from Russia for their nuclear power facilities.
He said this in response to Ukrainian officials asking him why, despite numerous economic penalties against Moscow over the conflict in Ukraine, the West has not yet outlawed the purchase of Russian uranium.
Presently, 20% of the uranium imported into the EU is from Russia. This uranium was used in two reactors in Bulgaria, six in the Czech Republic, two in Finland, four in Hungary, and four in Slovakia.
According to his remarks, Habeck indirectly calls for the EU to put sanctions on the nations, including Bulgaria, that acquire uranium from Russia.
