An energy ministry spokeswoman cited a misunderstanding when asked why the statement had disappeared from the ministry's website, but she did not elaborate.

Ukraine on Thursday deleted a statement saying Energy Minister German Galushchenko had discussed the possibility of sanctions on Russia’s nuclear power supplier Rosatom with U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm.

An energy ministry spokeswoman cited a misunderstanding when asked why the statement had disappeared from the ministry’s website, but she did not elaborate.

The initial statement was replaced by one that said Galushchenko had stressed the importance of clean energy when he met Granholm in the United States. The later statement made no mention of Rosatom.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said last month it was “not normal” that Western countries have not yet imposed sanctions on Rosatom.
