Opening of sculptural compositions — art objects «Shining Light» and «Balanced Light» took place on the territory of the Museum of History of Mailuu-Suu and Uranium Heritage of Kyrgyzstan. The compositions were installed within the framework of cooperation between Rosatom and the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Kyrgyz Republic. TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom reported.

The Museum of Mailuu-Suu History and Uranium Heritage of Kyrgyzstan is the only museum of its kind in Central Asia, which presents archival materials about the uranium mining industry in the Kyrgyz Republic almost a century ago.

In 2023, work was completed on the reclamation of Kak tailing dump, liquidation of Taldy-Bulak tailing dump adjacent to Min-Kush settlement. Works on conservation of Dalneye tailing dump and liquidation of Tuyuk-Suu tailing dump (both on the territory of Min-Kush) continue, the completion date is 2024. All facilities will be brought in compliance with IAEA and Kyrgyz Republic radiation safety standards. Implementation of the projects will ensure environmental safety of the region.
