Kirienko added that Russia does not exclude the possibility of building new units at Hungarian nuclear power plants.

On December 9, 2014, a Rosatom source told RIA Novosti that Russia and Hungary had signed a contract for the construction of two new power generating units for Paks.

Paks is Hungary's only operating nuclear power plant. It is located in central Hungary and generated more than 50 percent of Hungary's national energy production in 2013.
