Hungary’s Paks Deal Linked To Russian Espionage In France
Russian company Rosatom may have sold a nuclear reactor to “a European country” by means of secret service information, French weekly Le Nouvel Observateur has written in an article on Russian spies in France.

A Russian spy was reportedly aware of the details of a secret offer that Rosatom’s French rival Areva had made to the leadership of a third country.

If the information is correct, wrote, it is possible that Russian then summoned Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to Moscow urgently and made him an offer that could not be rejected.

Another theory has it that the description in the article fits a power plant planned in Finland rather than Hungary.
