Rosatom on Friday officially confirmed that it received samples of contraband uranium from Georgia about a year ago for tests
Rosatom on Friday officially confirmed that it received samples of contraband uranium from Georgia about a year ago for tests. "About a year ago, our institute received samples of uranium from Georgia for comprehensive study," deputy director of the scientific institute of non-organic materials studies Igor Shkabura told reporters. The tests showed that the substance was regenerating uranium of high enrichment, he said. It is impossible to trace down to an origin a uranium sample received from Georgia, the deputy director general of Moscow’s Research Institute of Inorganic Materials, Igor Shkabura, said. “Technologies of different countries where such material is produced are very similar,” he said at a news conference in the Federal Agency for Nuclear Energy on Friday. The uranium received from Georgia for an examination by experts can be used to make nuclear weapons, deputy director of the Bochvar scientific and research institute of inorganic materials Igor Shkabura told reporters in Moscow. The substance is 90-percent enriched uranium-235. It can be used for military industry, including to make nuclear weapons, he said
