A summary of recent positron annihilation work on Russian VVER type reactor steels is presented. Thereby, special attention is paid to the outline of basic processes that might help to understand the positron behaviour in this class of industrial material. The idea of positron trapping by irradiation-induced precipitates, which are probably carbides, is discussed in detail.
