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

    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

    “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.
