Russia's nuclear power company today said that a Soviet-built nuclear reactor has been shut down after 45 years of service.

The state-controlled Rosatom Corporation said that Reactor No. 1 at the Leningrad nuclear power plant has been taken out of operation as planned. It said it will take until 2023 to fully unload its uranium fuel.
 
Launched in 1973, the reactor became the first unit of the RBMK-1000 type to be built in the Soviet Union. A reactor of the same type exploded in Chernobyl in April 1986 in the world's worst nuclear accident.    
 
The Leningrad power plant has three other Soviet-built reactors of the same type.
