Atomstroieksport said in a statement the reloading started today.

Also today, an Iranian lawmaker said parliament had launched an investigation into repeated delays in the startup of Bushehr.

The delays have prompted Iranian officials to describe Russia as an "unreliable partner."

Iran's state media have often said politics, not technical issues, is the reason behind the delay.
