"was established on January 29, 1992 as a successor of the Ministry of Nuclear Engineering and Industry of the USSR. " - This organisation are widely known in USSR/Russia as "Minsredmash" (Ministry of medium machine-building). In fact, it's a soviet nuclear brand. IMHO, this fact must be described in article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:37, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Is this the same group as in The World Is Not Enough? Bayerischermann 03:32, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

I guess the organisation in the film was based on the real organisation. But don't expect to meet Christmas Jones in the real organisation. Andrewa (talk) 05:18, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

A law adopted by the Russian parliament and signed by the Russian President transformed the status from Federal Agency to state owned company called Rosatom. Please change the Article's name to Rosatom. Superzohar Red star.svg Talk 13:29, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

If this is the only reason for the move proposal, then I'm afraid it's premature. We don't automatically follow every official name change. See Wikipedia:naming conventions. Andrewa (talk) 05:41, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
It is not only the change of official name, but also change of the legal status. It is not anymore state agency, but state corporation. For this reason the name including "federal agency" is incorrect. Beagel (talk) 07:51, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Interesting... so you're saying that this should be an exception to the normal policy at WP:NC?
There are some, but not many. It would probably be easier to argue that the common usage has changed to reflect the official and legal usage, if in fact this is the case. But to reiterate, we don't automatically follow official name changes, even those that reflect changes of legal status. Andrewa (talk) 00:37, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Support. I've done some reading, and it appears to me that Rosatom is indeed now the common name in English. Andrewa (talk) 21:53, 16 January 2008 (UTC)


Has anyone been able to find information on this corporation's finances? Is it profitable? -- (talk) 05:59, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Why the rename? Propose undo unless good explanation[edit]

Why was this article renamed "Rosatom (Russian state corporation)", seemingly corntrary to WP policy, when there was no disambiguation problem?

  • WP:COMMONNAME: "Wikipedia prefers the name that is most commonly used"
  • WP:NAMINGCRITERIA: "Conciseness – The title is no longer than necessary to identify the article's subject and distinguish it from other subjects."
  • WP:NAMINGCRITERIA: "The title is sufficiently precise to unambiguously identify the article's subject and distinguish it from other subjects."

Unless a policy based explanation of this rename is provided, I propose we undo the rename. Rwendland (talk) 18:36, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
