On the ITER platform, ITER Deputy Director-General Valery Chuyanov and Diagnostic Physicist Evgeny Veshchev were interviewed by NTV science correspondant Sergei Malozemov.
Last Saturday 5 June, the Russian television network NTV aired a seven-minute program on fusion energy. The documentary was partly shot at ITER and features interviews of Deputy Director-General Valery Chuyanov, Senior Scientist Akko Maas and Diagnostic Physicist Evgeny Veshchev.

Viewers are also taken to the Kurchatov Institute in Moscow to retrace the history of fusion and to the Chepetsk Mechanical Plant in the Republic of Udmurtia in the middle Urals where superconducting strands are being produced for ITER.
