American experts called the senators' initiative to ban Russian uranium imports "a mixture of populism and incompetence"

Brunswick Nuclear Power Plant in South Carolina, USA



U.S. Senator John Barasso of Wyoming, along with several other Republican U.S. senators, introduced a bill in the upper house of Congress to ban imports of uranium from Russia.

Barasso said in a statement that "the time has come for the United States to refuse to purchase any energy from Russia."

US Senator:

We have already introduced a ban on the import of Russian hydrocarbons. Of course, this is important. But this should not be our last step. We must ban the import of uranium. This will give a boost to our industry.

Earlier, a document banning the import of energy resources from Russia (including uranium) was adopted by the lower house of the US Congress - the House of Representatives.

Against this background, experts in the United States themselves call the bill "a mixture of populism and incompetence." In particular, it is recalled that the dependence of American nuclear power plants on Russian uranium is at least 40 percent. Of course, the United States could replace Russian uranium, for example, with raw materials from Australia or another country where mining takes place. But there is an important component here: Russia is the only foreign supplier of enriched fuel for nuclear power plants to the United States. If such imports are closed now, then up to half of American nuclear reactors will have to be shut down, and this is a colossal blow to the US energy system. And it takes years to replace Russian enriched uranium.

In this regard, it has been suggested that the congressmen themselves, as often happened before, even if the law is passed, will immediately accept a number of exceptions. As an example, exceptions are given for the payment of sovereign debt by Russia in dollars, as well as exceptions for the purchase of so-called "heavy" oil.

Fox News noted that the initiative of a number of senators to ban the import of uranium from Russia caused "concern" in the US Department of Energy.

    Oddly enough, I fully support the initiative of the US senators good be sure to ban! The US doesn't need uranium, it doesn't need it at all...

        1. Uranium is a strategic raw material, which means it has certain reserves.
        2. Fuel cells are replaced more than once a month or a year, which means they have a reserve for at least one cycle, this is somewhere from 4 years ...
        3 In 4 years, the Americans may well establish this production at home or satellites, i.e. in the long run we lose a permanent customer
        3 It is really better to pay for uranium in rubles. Let them lower themselves everything that can be lowered ...

            They have stock until the end of the year. Then they will "go crazy with happiness."
            So it is necessary right now, before they realize it, to arrange an answer in the form of an embargo. It would be a demonstration action for the whole world. And they always felt sorry for them. They took care of their image. Even in the USSR during the Caribbean crisis, when we removed rockets from Cuba in public, and they were silent from Turkey. And then they should have been forced to do it just as widely, with maximum reputational losses.
            And now it would be indicative to do this.

                While we will lovingly hide the trump cards, they will restructure the economy, including the uranium one. And then your/our trump cards will turn out to be sixes, because the trump card has changed.
                If (in a hypothetical card game) I can end the game with a win on the first move by entering with trumps, I will enter with trumps. And I will not collect a deck in my hands until the enemy leaves the game, getting rid of cards and hanging sixes on my last move.
                The collapse of the US energy industry will lead them to such a crisis that it will be just right for them to re-introduce a policy of self-isolation, and not climb all over the world.

Decrease in the level of education, "gender" policy in the recruitment of personnel, including top management (a gynecologist - to the ministers of defense!).

                  The threat of uranium sanctions is hanging in the air. It's annoying.
                  Therefore, all congressmen pretend that they do not
                  scary. I am not against these sanctions. But, IMHO,
                  threaten sanctions when the States are already able to
                  give back. Just like it was in the Caribbean Crisis.
                  We don't want an instant US collapse. When,
                  if this happens, we and everyone around us will also suffer.
                  We need to force them to accept our vision of a new world order. This will be a great victory.
                  For the States to swear off with the Russian Federation to butt for the foreseeable
                  perspective. Real task. hi

              Yes, yes, yes, that's exactly what you need to do to shoot yourself in the head and that's it)))) Well, at least turn on your brains a little! The Americans themselves and other sane Western and Eastern analysts insist that sanctions do not work! More precisely, they work primarily against the one who uses them. Why do you think we still supply oil and gas to Europe, as well as rare earth (palladium, platinum, etc.) and the color of met (aluminum, copper)? And everything is simple: 1. We maintain the image of a reliable partner that fulfills contracts in any situation. 2. We get in excess of profit (the issue with the currency is resolved and we get the money, otherwise where do we get foreign exchange earnings to help reduce the ruble against the dollar and the euro). 3. After the introduction of a ban on the purchase of our goods on their part, their governments are explaining their business, and we are not spending money on a showdown in their courts with a known result.
              If you dig on the Internet, you will definitely find information that some Asian countries are increasing their fertilizer trade, although they do not have their own production facilities. Have no idea how it turns out?

                In the event of our embargo, "not only everyone, few people will be able to increase the trade in highly enriched uranium."
                Further on the items:
                1. Since the imposition of the embargo will be the answer, the image will not decrease. But the blow to the US economy will even push those very changes in the world.
                2. US losses will exceed the loss from lost profits by orders of magnitude. We already have more losses from the freezing of our assets, and at times, than the profit from the uranium trade. And it's straight. apart from the indirect ones. Despite the fact that these reserves could already greatly develop their own industry.
                3. With the collapse of the US economy, from the same shortage of electricity, they will not be up to international courts. Moreover, with such a sanctions policy against us, more by court, less by court - it no longer plays a role from the word at all. All courts can be safely sent to Shoigu.

                  It is not necessary to write nonsense of a great mind. Firstly, a private office (daughter of Rosatom) trades in uranium (legally). At these sales, a huge number of people warm their hands, living by the principle: "let the hand that offended itself wither wither." Do you really believe that they don't care about extra profits?
                  Secondly, this image is nothing for you, but for a country that seeks to create an alternative world economy based precisely on the discrediting of its image by the "collective West", it is very important, and if you do not understand this, then this only means that the level of the question is not yours.
                  Well, and, thirdly, sending everyone to the Minister of Defense is at least not smart. You become a subordinate of Sergei Kuzhugetovich, complete tasks in the zone of operation in Syria or Ukraine, and only after that send. And then "everyone imagines himself a strategist, seeing the battle from the side."

              According to the HEU-LEU contract, we ourselves diluted weapons-grade highly enriched uranium with it. Quote: "In total, within the framework of the program, 14 tons were exported from Russia to the United States low enriched I suspect that even now low-enriched uranium is being exported. Because there is no point in first enriching it to weapons-grade, and then exporting it to the United States for dilution to low-enriched uranium. This is double spending.

            You are not worried about the economy, but because of the profit, and not the profit for the goods produced by us, but because of the profit for the sale of natural resources.

    Let's give it up.
    Of course, spring is just around the corner. The demand for heat and electricity decreases in spring. But then it will be summer. And there, millions of Americans will turn on air conditioners. And then autumn and winter, "not far off."
    And then what?
    But the Americans cannot ensure the flow of energy from the west coast to the east, from north to south, since the networks are in private hands (do you feel under whose strict guidance the "red-haired s.voloch" broke our energy system in the Russian Federation?)
    And such a "pandemonium" will begin in the "city on the hill" that "mother do not cry."
    How do you charge electric vehicles?
    Set up windmills, or what?
    But Europe showed the whole world what happens when there is calm or when "ice rains" come.
    Again, the Americans will have to restore oil, coal and gas generating stations.
    It seems to me that both we and the Americans in the legislature have a very high percentage of mentally abnormal people who are not burdened with elementary logical thinking.

    It is necessary not only uranium, but in general all resources to be sold for rubles. Hote gas, oil, uranium, aluminum and so on, buy from us for our currency, and better for material things like gold. And of course, it is necessary to nationalize all enterprises where shareholders have a place to be companies from unfriendly countries. Do you even know that all of our aluminum does not belong to us? Mr. Deripaska a few years ago transferred his assets to the management of American funds in exchange for not including his beloved on the sanctions lists. Now the hands are untied.

    The bad thing is that Putin agrees to play by someone else's rules: "We won't buy this from you, but we will definitely buy this, and just try not to sell it!"
    Meanwhile, no one hides that these purchases are temporary - until they find an alternative, even more expensive. As a result, Putin, agreeing to such conditions. gives the "partners" both the necessary materials and the time needed to establish ties with Russia's competitors. The same European Union has already decided to abandon Russian gas by 2030. If you stop supplying gas now, Europe will collapse to its knees. And in 2030, the refusal to buy it will be framed as regular sanctions.
    Oil continued to be supplied to America, giving the opportunity to conspire behind our backs with Iran and Venezuela, who will now happily begin to cooperate with the United States, showing Putin the fig. If the US had imposed a ban on the sale of oil a little earlier, this would have been regarded by everyone as a very powerful blow.

    It turns out not only in Europe, the psycho hospitals were closed, but also in the USA, too.

    All these restrictions have very specific financial goals. In a simple way - to squeeze out a little money.
    What is happening with oil. Europe is now buying it through pipes, and they even pay money, but all this is done with a very serious discount of 20-30%. Referring apparently to circumventing the sanctions and covering the risks. We are forced to do this in order not to stop production and the industry as a whole.

All this talk of failure is all for the internal user. Hurray patriots with undisguised pleasure describe how the Yankees or Europeans will live without our resources.
