  • ‘Russia says recovered all stolen weapons-grade nuclear material in last 25 yrs’

    Posted by Ralf Goergens on September 15th, 2004 (All posts by )

    From the same people who brought you Chernobyl:

    MOSCOW (AFX) – All the nuclear material that has been stolen from Russia
    over the past quarter of a century has been recovered, the head of the country’s
    atomic energy agency said.

    Alexander Rumiantsev, making his comments after a series of terror attacks
    in Russia, said that the quantities stolen never amounted to more than tens of
    grammes.

    “Over the past 25 years we have recorded several disappearances of
    military-quality nuclear material and it was always tens of grammes. These
    materials were always retrieved as a result of painstaking inquiries,” he said.

    He revealed however that only 10 pct of a 100 kilo quantity of natural
    uranium that also disappeared has been recovered.

    But he added: “This substance could never be used to make nuclear weapons,
    something that the thieves surely ignored.”

    So that’s alright then.

      Cause when you think “careful accounting” you think Russia.
