Military Review

And in our apartment - gas! Our atomic levers

177
Good day, colleagues. This is the first article in addition to the words I have said about technological levers, as one of the tools in the confrontation with the United States and Western countries.


As I said earlier, these levers are not as much as we would like, but they are. In this article, I would like to touch on two areas of high technology, which are closely intertwined with each other and in which today's Russia managed to add something new to the potential preserved from the USSR, thereby increasing this potential. We are talking about nuclear power engineering in general and about such a concomitant and indispensable aspect of it, as the technology for the production of weapons and industrial Uranus.

From many members of the forum it is sometimes possible (though it has long been almost gone) to hear exclamations that Russia has sold all its uranium and weapons US plutonium for nothing and now on nuclear energy and nuclear weapons of Russia can put an end to. So - I have to upset these guys.

History with this “sold out” uranium, its roots go back in the last years of the existence of the Soviet Union. Relatively shortly before these events, in the context of the psychosis of the Cold War, the USSR and the USA, trying to overtake each other in the number of nuclear warheads, riveted so many warheads that the missiles themselves were not enough for their practical use. Judge for yourselves - by that time the USA had stocked 32000, and the USSR - 44000 such missiles and seriously considered plans to increase the number of these carriers. Since weapons-grade uranium is not a product of eternal storage, but has the properties of self-decay, it became necessary to put these deposits somewhere. And the Americans decided to use the extracted weapons-grade uranium, after appropriate refinement, in the nuclear power plants that had appeared by then. This method was much less expensive compared to fine-tuning it again to weapons condition. Weapon Uranus and Plutonium began to be diluted with low enriched Uranium and put into fuel at nuclear power plants. But these nuclear power plants were so voracious that soon the Americans realized that they could be left without weapons-grade Uranus and plutonium because the only enrichment enterprise was only a gas diffusion plant in Paducah, which was forced to plow both weapons and energy. Instead of the required 12 million SWUs, he hardly issued 8.5 SWUs, which, as we see, is catastrophically small.

Under these conditions, the United States, deciding that they, as always, the most cunning, came up with "peace initiatives" that were supported by the Soviet leadership, were widely spread by the Americans and allowed states with a lower degree of fear to increase their capabilities to provide their nuclear power plants with low-enriched low-enriched uranium . But, as it was not supposed, these nuclear power plants were so voracious that they forced the United States to sell the uranium extracted from the heads of the Soviet Union to the Soviet Union and then diluted to the necessary condition on Soviet capacities and return it to its “homeland”. On this basis, an agreement was reached on the sale in the USSR of 500 tons of weapons-grade uranium, about which compassionate people began to spread as if they were sold out to the domestic.

Subsequently, the Americans in the 1992 year, believing that they had successfully “shod” everyone, having saddled the Soviet uranium-enrichment complex, stopped their plutonium-producing reactor.

In Russia, taking into account the available reserves of plutonium and uranium ore, and taking into account the imminent appearance of a super modern reactor-breeder, its own reactor, similar to the American one, was stopped in 2010 year in Russia. By that time, the Union had already collapsed, the uranium deposits of Kazakhstan and Ukraine remained abroad, and the possibilities of the Russian Priargunsky deposit provided only half of the enrichment capacity of Russia. The Americans were denied further enrichment for reasons of lack of natural uranium for themselves. Fearing the downtime of their nuclear power plants, the Americans persuaded European uranium producers to sell Russian uranium at a lower price in order to provide their nuclear power plants with a consistent and proven process chain.

In general, the enrichment capacity of Russia today is provided with raw materials for 17 years. In addition, for all these years, the uranium reserves in the United States have significantly decreased due to the gluttony of their nuclear power plants, enrichment capacities, at least to the level of industrial ones, have not increased. Today, Russia is almost a monopoly (the capacity of some countries with centrifuges is not counted because of low power) a producer of plutonium. The United States nuclear power plants are sorely lacking fuel for the future, and therefore the United States, with enviable persistence, continues to insist on various agreements to limit and reduce nuclear weapons. The situation is very, very difficult in the matter of providing fuel to its nuclear power plants not only in the US, but also in their European allies. That is why Americans pay all Green lobbying for the closure and construction of new NPPs around the world in order to draw off the small reserves that are in stock for themselves.

Today, US uranium reserves will hardly scrap 300. while in Russia this figure is 800 m. of free weapons-grade uranium. The US only enrichment, privatized, and then safely bankrupt under schemes that were widely implemented until recently, and here, USEC is in the corral at a time when Russian centrifuges spin without a break for lunch and sleep-hour. Of course-a mess and blame him-Putin.

ATOMIC INDUSTRY
Well, and inextricably linked to the topic of uranium and plutonium - the topic of nuclear energy. In the energy sector, Russia in foreign markets will be represented by Rosatom, which today has a portfolio of overseas orders worth more than 50 billion for the next 10 years. The number of contracts for the construction of nuclear power plants abroad is 21 power unit in nine countries. Moreover, intergovernmental agreements have already been signed on the 19 blocks. We are talking about countries such as China (four blocks), India (four blocks), Belarus (two blocks), Armenia (one block), Ukraine (two blocks), Vietnam (two blocks) and Turkey (four blocks).

At the same time, the government sets ambitious plans for energy equipment manufacturers: by 2020, the export of energy equipment must reach in terms of 10 GW capacity per year (in 2012, it will be only 3 GW).

Moreover, exports will be increased not only at the expense of Rosatom, but also due to the export of hydraulic and steam turbines that are used in the construction of power plants. Today 38% steam turbines manufactured in Russia are exported, hydraulic turbines 63%, gas turbines 28%. However, Russia is now focusing on the production of small and medium-sized turbines, in order to conquer foreign markets, it is necessary to produce, among other things, high-capacity turbines, and so far only one company is involved - Power Machines. The fact is that the production of high power turbines will allow the creation of large power units (more than 400 MW).

In accordance with the Energy Strategy of Russia for the period up to 2030, by 2030, Russia will have to take 15% of the global power engineering market against the current 2%, that is, overtake Siemens (now they have 10%) and catch up with Alstom (16%).

In conclusion, I would like to preface the question of whether the stated information and the Russian achievements described in it can be used as leverage. Yes, it can be taken into account that the countries that are vitally dependent on Russian technology are allies of the United States, and the pressure can be exerted on the enemy and through the impact on its allies, as Israel today is putting pressure on Lebanon, threatening to destroy all of its logistics infrastructure, if Lebanon will support Hezbollah fighters. And the fact that we have such achievements today is a vivid confirmation that they are needed in the modern world.

In the next article I will summarize information about our technological capabilities in the field of aircraft and engine-building.

Sincerely. ESAUL

    Not in the subject of this question, but if this is true, then the emotions are positive. As far as gun material is concerned, its half-life depends on the storage form ... So some thoughts aloud lead to skepticism about competence. And this topic should not be seriously discussed on the forums. For we also do not know the whole truth about "friends"

        In principle, yes. Therefore, I will not write about nuclear energy. The familiar name of the Power Machines company and the admiration of Esaul flashed through the article.
        For reference: Power Machines OJSC is 98% owned by the Cypriot company Highstat ltd, which belongs to Mordashov. So it is not worth admiring much, because the company works mainly not for the country of Russia, but for the country of Zabugoria.

        Or knowledgeable people, namely AWARE and not "knowledgeable".
        these nuclear power plants were so voracious that they forced the United States to sell the uranium extracted from the heads of the Soviet Union to the Soviet Union, followed by dilution to the required condition at Soviet facilities and returning it to its “homeland”. It was on this basis that an agreement was reached on the sale of 500 tons of weapons-grade uranium in the USSR, about which compassionate people later began to spread, as if they were sold domestic.
        Now we know where the "party's gold" went, they were paid for the plutonium! good wink (this is a remark)

        From where is this AWARENESS?
        Is it possible in reality 500tn plutonium transaction fact, the USA-USSR?

          it is not correct. The question is that there will soon be a massive reboot of reactors and uranium is not enough for everyone. and EMNIP among amers, the last power unit was released in the 80th year.

      Anyone can make a "yellow cake", but enrichment in isotopes is already a big problem. Euro-Atlanteans are engaged in gas diffusion, they also say that they are about to turn a trick with laser enrichment, General Electric seems to be even building a plant. The Kurchatov Institute also studied the issue - they said that large-scale production should not be expected. So at the moment Russian centrifuges are the coolest. So the author is right - there is a lever.

      Yesterday’s criticism of the author by forum users was not in vain and today he really issued an article, not a set of paragraphs. You can be touched by magic tricks with weapons-grade plutonium, but I don’t want to stir up these pages, which are not the most pleasant for Russia, since the contract, if I am not mistaken, is already coming to an end.
      I will mention only two points in this comment:
      Moreover, intergovernmental agreements have already been signed in 19 blocks. We are talking about countries such as China (four blocks), India (four blocks), Belarus (two blocks), Armenia (one block), Ukraine (two blocks), Vietnam (two blocks) and Turkey (four blocks).

      What do you think on whose loans most of them are being built and what is the probability that these loans will be returned to Russia? Offhand, Vietnam was allocated 8 billion for nuclear power plants, Belarus, Armenia, Ukraine - no comment (where is the money from?). If it is impossible to repay the loans, will Russia shut down the reactors and "take away" the nuclear power plant? Or will he “write off” with a smile or, in the modern language, “understand and forgive”?
      But based on this situation, is it not because electricity in Russia is so expensive and why does it cost Russians more than foreigners?
      In the meantime, China buys electricity in Russia at prices below domestic prices: in 2010 - about 1,25 rubles. for 1 kWh. And the population of Blagoveshchensk pays for it an average of more than 1,95 rubles. “Of course, the price on the Russian wholesale market is lower, but it also exceeds the cost of deliveries to China by about a third,” experts say. It turns out that Chinese consumers of electricity are more important than our own for our government.

      Finland may begin exporting electricity to Russia at the beginning of 2014, according to Fingrid. To do this, it is necessary to settle a number of technical and administrative issues.

      Export of electricity from Finland to Russia has become economically viable, as in many cases it costs more in Russia than in Finland.

        Here, Esaul tries to convince us that uranium is higher than the roof, and if we sell a bit, Russia will not become poor. Yes, and on Esaul, we kind of don’t sell our uranium, but we remake uranium from the USA laughing We heard about steamboats and railway trains carrying 500t. American uranium? So I have not heard.
        And everyone heard about the import of nuclear waste:
        "Mr. Vejonis said that Latvia will have to pay Russia about 300 thousand lats (about 420 thousand euros) for the processing and storage of waste. Foreign nuclear waste will again go to Russia, to the notorious Mayak plant.
        More details: http://www.bellona.ru/articles_ru/articles_2007/Salaspils "
        "This week, Russia and Iran signed an agreement to supply nuclear fuel to the Bushehr nuclear power plant and return the waste to Russia."
        http://www.rbcdaily.ru/market/562949979066559
        That's what they bring to us, and not weapons-grade uranium and plutonium !!!
        And 500, we sold OUR
        "The HEU-LEU program has disposed of 450 tons of Russian weapons-grade uranium. It is reasonable to expect that at the end of the program's period, Russia will transfer all the agreed 500 tons of weapons-grade uranium to the United States. I will point out right away that this uranium now provides about 12% of the world's demand for reactor uranium and 38% of the need for reactor uranium in the United States itself.

        More information at http://voprosik.net/prodazha-oruzhejnogo-urana-v-ssha-vygodna-rossii/ © QUESTION "

        We must remember that merchants rule our country and are primarily interested in personal enrichment, so you should not feel illusions about the sale of weapons-grade uranium (our uranium is sold, it is ours, belonging to the people of the Russian Federation and future generations. And it is on our land that nuclear waste is brought and our people will die out of them!
        And the position of Esaul - selflessly protecting the merchants destroying my Motherland is surprising in me.

            "Currently, no country in the world allows the import of nuclear waste into its territory, and nowhere in the world has a safe technology for disposal of spent nuclear fuel and other types of radioactive waste been created. Russia is the only country where domestic legislation allows the implementation of such projects."

              Even a fully spent nuclear fuel contains at least one critical mass. But really - much more. So this is not garbage, but briquetted highly enriched raw materials. It is only necessary to wait for the departure of short-lived isotopes, so as not to get too dirty during processing

And in conditions of fetal formation, this is all the more dangerous. Well, if you add on the wild amount of preservatives and GMOs in the diet, including children?

                    In the USSR in 1946 — 1952. centrifuges were handled by a group of “captured” German scientists led by Dr. Max Steenbeck, displaced by the NKVD in the 1945 year at the NII-5 in Sukhumi. The working conditions of those years in Sukhumi, and the achievements in creating a working gas centrifuge stand by 1952, are described in detail in the memoirs of N.F. Lazarev, who in those years, being a technician in the group of M. Steeenbek, worked closely with Dr. G. Zippe In January 1951, the results of the development of the gas centrifuge were reported at a meeting of the Technical Council, and in September 1952, part of the Steenbeck group was transferred from Sukhumi to Leningrad to the Design Bureau of the Kirov Plant. In 1953, the group was suspended from further participation in these works, and in 1956, scientists returned to Germany

              Igor, good evening hi There are specialized publications for this. But this is far from interesting to everyone. If you are interested, you will find, pal. hi
              I repeat - the article was about ONE of the levers, and not about the whole complex of problems of the nuclear problem, including the environment.
              And whether the editorial or not, everyone decides for himself. I did not pretend to be a nuclear physicist. Do you have something interesting and where are you competent - tell me ...

            Sharing. But the most important thing is the supply and processing of fuel + field supervision, etc., etc. And with a probability of 146% there will be a mechanism for remote shutdown of the reactor.
            energy-thorium for example, and then these nuclear power plants in general will bankrupt us

            There is no percentage of thorium in the earth’s crust, but it is problematic to obtain it. There are monazite sands. Indians are Brazilians and we have dumps. Right now, on Indians we will practice with their AHWR there we will see.

Kozma Prutkov said - "You cannot embrace the immense" and - a thousand times right. I, laying out this article do not apply for the Nobel Prize, guys. I just wanted to outline one of the levers of Russia's possible influence in resolving its issues. A - I read such reviews ...

    Firstly, they were pleasantly pleased with the knowledge of individual members of the forum in the field of nuclear physics. Respect to you, friends hi - this is without a grin!good As this is not offensively voiced for some, but DOMOKL is right - a small part of the forum users in the subject.

    Secondly, the attempts to draw me into the discussion on the aforementioned issues, as Apollo repeatedly tried to do, do not make sense, because Apollo is as competent in this matter as I am. What are you talking about, Apollo ?!

    And thirdly, thanks to the guys who took the article calmly and expressed their opinion without sticking labels.

    I’ll also add guys, at the end of today's article I made a typo (wrote late, in a hurry, sorry). I plan not summarize issues in aircraft and engine building, and outline some of our capabilities to put pressure on competitors to resolve their issues. As for aviation, that is, people are much more competent in this matter. For which they have a separate respect.
    I apologize for squeezing the comments among the first, but I would like you to understand that I am ready to listen to constructive criticism during the discussion, but not criticism in any way.

                  2) Privatization of Rosnano initiated by a red rat, in the near future 10% shares will be sold
                  3) VTB Bank privatization

                    this is an infrastructural object - strategically important, the rest of the objects can be to some extent "neglected", leaving the liberals at the mercy to leave power and not get underfoot.
                    but based on human nature, it’s hard to believe it, so I’ll wait until the fall before making final assessments.
                    because if you look at the other side of what suddenly, instead of finishing off the defense, they suddenly began to revive it ??? to support illusions, so as not to create protest moods ???
                    so the situation is still twofold, at least for me.

                      I think exactly the same opinion, it seems to me that the people would have thrown the gingerbread, because 5 90's years would have been a 100% revolution, and so they pretended that everything was getting better, although nothing had changed. , gave the enemy in the face of the United States and the marsh (which would have been planted long ago if it were necessary), and we sit chewing one while they do the other. And it is also strange that they are blaming everything on the ministers (who Pu himself set and upholds) that he sees nothing and everything is going on without his knowledge, again the bear worked successfully, drove the country into the WTO, threw Libya and, like Pu, in business and the fact that Medvedev was the successor of Pu nobody remembers, and Pu himself is the successor of the drunk Yeltsin, why would a traitor advertise Pu? Serdyuk is being held, they have done their work and ends in the water, now they will throw it over the hill and everything, will give them Pu money for a comfortable life and voila, but he himself has nothing to do with it, this is all of them. And rearmament, let’s say so with difficulty, and I’m generally keeping quiet about the economy. The same situation with the Central Bank, which should be nationalized, everyone waited and waited and what did Pu do when changing the head of the Central Bank? I put a pro-western fry-up there, and personally, I didn’t know either? Birth problems have long been resolved by the banal ban on abortion and the construction of good orphanages, cadet corps, etc. But who cares? Corruption as it was everywhere, so it remained everywhere, even pay attention to the news that the fact was revealed there, then there, neither the names, nor the refund does not occur. For that propaganda works with a bang, as if ours have adopted the experience of the United States in this matter. So I rather hold the opinion that Pu is a traitor, but not a stupid traitor like Yeltsin, but clever and cunning. Everything seems to be improving, but in reality, as it was in 90's, it still remains, we got only an illusion. Over the 13 years there is no stable economy, no education, no army, how many have already been heard about the USE? And it's still there to think that Pu does not know this stupidly, because only the lazy one did not speak about it. Something like this, I think, this is only Esaul the whale here, singing the praises of Poo, but in fact all of his articles and arguments are soap bubbles, because it is worth a little to ask about the topics touched by them, then I will fight the bubbles and burst.

    ] In accordance with the Energy Strategy of Russia for the period up to 2030, by 2030, Russia will have to occupy 15% of the world market for power engineering against the current 2%, that is, overtake Siiemens (now they have 10%) and catch up with Alstom (16%).
    [

    If everything "grows together" Russia will have leverage on its enemies.
    Energy has always been a hot issue, especially in recent times.

    Esaulu put a plus, but, although I am not a pessimist, the article is too brave. The article smooths out the criminal moments of the EBN Agreement on the sale of weapons-grade nuclear material to our sworn partners and does not report on agreements on the purchase of uranium in Ukraine and Kazakhsan.

      In general, the enrichment capacities of Russia today are provided with raw materials for 17 years.

      The development of nuclear energy raises the fundamental issue of providing raw materials. The total uranium reserve in Russia, taking into account the available uranium reserves in warehouses, according to the head of Rosatom S. Kiriyenko, significantly exceeds 1 million tons (of which 547,8 thousand are balance reserves). According to S. Kiriyenko, the total amount of uranium will be enough to operate both existing and planned for the construction of nuclear energy facilities for 60 years7, even if Russia does not buy a gram of uranium abroad. hi
      In conclusion, I would like to preface the question - is it possible to use the information presented and the Russian achievements described in it as leverage. Yes, it can be given that countries that depend heavily on Russian technologies are allies of the United States, and pressure can be exerted on the enemy through the influence on his allies, as Israel does today by exerting pressure on Lebanon,
      And why do we need to stoop to the level of Israel, why does Russia engage in blackmail and other intrigues. Today we are pursuing an open policy and, most importantly, calling things by their proper names. Putin will not go down to the level of the West and pursue a similar policy. It will be enough to build cheaper and better than Western competitors and people themselves will be drawn to Russia.
      In the next article I will summarize information about our technological capabilities in the field of aircraft and engine-building.
      Our capabilities are far inferior to our needs! -

        And regarding the meaning of what you said, I agree completely. Russia can afford not to stoop to such wrying out of hands and to such blackmail. Well, I must try to behave that way. True, this is not always the case. In order to speed up the thought processes in their heads with the Finns, Russia still had to play a little with the export of timber, especially round timber. Otherwise, permission from the Finns to lay the Nord Stream pipe under the sea would have to wait a long time

          Oh, how are you, that is, any criticism of Putin and immediately written in anti-Putinists, normally so. But does Putin himself say that criticism is useful? If you are silent, then Putin will not know anything at all what really happens in the regions. Not a small fraction of the information is also drawn from the Internet with the site of ordinary visitors, and from here domestic policy is adjusted. There are things and there are many of them where I support Putin 100% with both hands, especially in foreign policy, but there are things that he still cannot handle, this is corruption, and he himself spoke about this last year. And I do not think that in this case my criticism is not objective.

            But it should be noted that if such retaliatory moves are possible with the Finns - the Finns would not have solved the issue of alternative timber supply anyway - there is nowhere to get it, except as in Russia, then, according to Esaul's proposal, such "reciprocal steps" towards the States may not always have pleasant consequences for Russia. For example, the States, faced with pressure on them from Russia along this line, can immediately rush to solve it and very much even (with their technological, financial and scientific potential) can successfully solve it. As a result, the results of pressure may turn out to be modest, and Russia can easily acquire a competitor in the field of nuclear technologies and nuclear energy. "Don't wake up smartly while it is quiet" is a well-known Kazakh proverb. Roughly the same can be extended to space technology and space exploration.

              The guard of President Vladimir Putin tried not to let Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich into the residence of Bocharov Stream. According to RBC-daily, they managed to get through the checkpoint at the entrance of the car only after a call to Dmitry Medvedev.
              But the car was not missed. Security said the deputy prime minister is not on the lists.

              “We’ll leave now, let them sort it out later,” Dvorkovich said.
              “We have our own boss, we’ll say that to him: Dvorkovich arrived without documents,” the FSO staff replied.

              The discussion ended with a call to the head of government: “Dima, they’re not letting us in!”

              “Security is security, there are hiccups,” commented Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Vladimir Putin, on RBC daily.

      “In general, by 1985 the USSR did not have enough missiles to bolt all the charges it had to them. By the end of 1985, the USSR, at the peak of its glory, had about 44 nuclear charges. Some of these charges was with weapons-grade plutonium, part with highly enriched uranium, but the general assessment made, for example, here, tells us the following: as of 000, both main enemies in the Cold War had about 1991% of the world's reserves of all highly enriched plutonium (95 tons) and uranium (260 tons) .Assessment on the sides of the conflict looks like this: the USA possessed about 2 tons of uranium and about 000 tons of plutonium, while the USSR managed to produce about 600-85 tons of uranium and 1100 tons of plutonium. decomposed, for example, here, but in principle there are a lot of assessments in the Western literature and they all clearly say that the USSR overtook the United States about two times in weapons-grade isotopes. The "HEU-LEU" program utilized 1400 tons of Russian weapons-grade uranium. 155-450, the United States disposed of, in addition to the Russian 1993 tons of HEU, another 201,2 tons of its highly enriched uranium.It must be emphasized that all this uranium was finally consumed in the form of fuel for “western-type” reactors. That is, about 700 tons of weapons-grade uranium was the oxygen cushion that held the American (and more broadly - the whole Western!) Nuclear generation over the past 20 years. Again, returning to the previous materials of the series, the sensible centrifuge enrichment industry in Western countries (mainly due to the efforts of European companies Areva and Urenco) is still being created, and gas diffusion plants of USEC and Areva itself have already been scheduled for closure in the period 2015-2017. And (surprise! Surprise!) Russian weapons-grade uranium as part of the HEU-LEU deal ceases to enter the western market since 2014.

          ii / Actually - the “battle for uranium” was lost to the United States even then. If Trimile Island hadn’t happened in 1979, it would have been worth inventing. If you accept a “high” estimate of the available uranium at the end of the USSR era (1400 tons), then the reserves of Russian uranium will amount to around 780 tons, for example, calmly says such an informed person as the president of the Canadian company Cameco Jerry Grandi. This Canadian man knows this business very well - he supplied natural uranium to Russia at “special prices” exactly since 1999 and has supplied it to this day. He felt these Russian “other polymers” in his own skin. In general, even in the most pessimistic forecast, Russia can continue to supply the West with the HEU-LEU scheme for another 10-15 years. In general, everything is like Gogol’s in “Viye”. Whoever has a thicker prayer book and who holds a circle won. The night is shorter than the day.

        - and the largest re-exporter of uranium. The largest uranium producer in the world is Kazakhstan. After uranium mining from mines in the form of a yellow hake and its further primary processing, it is sent to Russia on Ulbink, where they are given the final presentation as special tablets (probably, as in the picture).
        Before such cooperation developed, in Kazakhstan there were some dark half-spy stories and turbulence in the top management of Kazatomprom (the world leader, I remind you), as a result of which the president of this organization, Mukhtar Dzhakishev, who, in general, made Kazatmprom a leader, went in prison for relatively (relatively familiar morals of our home-grown bureaucrats) small shoals. I strongly suspect that this story in the top management of the Kazakhstani national company and the SABZh somewhere strongly "beat" each other, but I do not know the details, so I will not say anything. Just in case - Russians, ay-ay-ay, there are not so many good managers in Kazakhstan that as a result of special operations at the political level they would end up on bunks. We will not be enough of professional managers. Well it is, on the ball.

            - Our local opposition newspapers are shouting about this, though they have little faith. Dzhakishev himself posted on YouTube, when there was an investigation that everything that happens in relation to him, is in the interests of Russia. But he is a person involved and self-interested, therefore, too, there is no particular faith.
            But if we nevertheless take into account that nuclear energy and nuclear technologies are strategic industries and are so important that they can be the subject of GREAT POLICY, and if we take into account that the strongest player in the nuclear energy field - Russia has everything - However, competitors - in the person of the same Westinghouse, then in Kazakhstan, as the largest supplier of the nuclear crowd, there could really be a fight for control over the flows of this fuel and it could really take just such a form. True, all these are assumptions based simply on logical premises. In any case, even if Dzhakishev suffered precisely because of this, this is partly his fault. A manager of this rank, and even in such an industry, must be able to analyze the situation, incl. and political, and make appropriate and correct decisions, incl. and concerning his personal safety.

    The situation is very, very difficult in providing fuel for their nuclear power plants not only in the United States, but also among their European allies. That’s why Americans are paying all sorts of “Green” lobbying for the closure and construction of new nuclear power plants around the world in order to delay the small reserves that are available to themselves

    rejection of the Iranian nuclear energy development program fits into this policy

            All that is connected with it is gos.taina, you will not post anything on it

            the physics of processes in nuclear weapons that has existed for almost 70 years is not a secret even for African kings. The secret may be neutron absorption cross sections, design elements, plutonium phase transitions (which have not yet been fully studied), but not a general principle. The barriers to everyone getting an atomic bomb are mostly technological, such as underdeveloped engineering, lack of enrichment facilities ...

            It's the same with "red mercury". If it existed, the technologies for its production, the exact parameters of the design of the charge with its use could be secret ...

            But the general principle, the basic reaction should be clear to everyone. And if you admit the existence of physical laws that were known in the USSR and unknown in the USA wink , then why should they buy it then laughing

    Thorium reactors are the normal branch of energy.
    Pros:
    1. The thorium reactor is, in principle, much safer than uranium (there is no self-sustaining reaction - it means it will go out without neutron pumping and the pressure in the circuit is low - there is no danger of pipeline ruptures).
    2. The thorium reactor produces much less waste and, at the same time, is capable of "burning" the "garbage" already produced by uranium reactors.
    3. Explored reserves of thorium are 4-5 times more than uranium.
    4. Almost all of the mined thorium (84%) can be used in reactors, unlike uranium (0,7% of the mined is suitability).
    5. The thorium reactor can be made small-sized, inexpensive (accessible to the community of a large village / small town (of course, in European economic theory)), low-maintenance (once a year) with continuous fuel injection (fuel refueling is not necessary - the operation in uranium reactors is unpleasant and unsafe , and even with a rather dubious pleasure of storing spent fuel on cooling).

      I think it's too early to write off uranium and replace it with thorium. Uranium 238, which is now almost never used, can be processed (with energy) in fast neutron reactors into new fuel, plutonium, and then plutonium can be burned in ordinary reactors ... Thus, not 0.7% of uranium will be used in 20 (!) times more. Well, when all uranium is burned, it may come to thorium ...

    There are two examples of incompetence: No one and NEVER uses CENTRIFUGA to obtain PLUTONIUM. Plutonium is chemically isolated.
    And a lot of such nonsense in this article.
    One can see a TARGETED attempt to launder a sale and wrecking deal on the almost FREE return of OWN weapon plutonium for use at American nuclear power plants. The wrecking here is twofold - the disarmament of Russia and the provision of HIS geopolitical ENEMY with free fuel for nuclear power plants.

    Only part of the title is correct in the article - "And we have gas in our apartment." - this is really an economic lever, and nuclear power plants are shut down in Germany and Japan, new ones are not being built in the USA, so nuclear raw materials are losing sales. After filling the storages, they will begin to distribute it to enthusiasts (for example, the author of the article) for storage under the bed, from this the fantasy will still warm up.
    In a global catastrophe, nuclear power plants and storage facilities overheat, so they bring everything here - Zionism takes care of the Russians. Contract expiration date for NM coincides with the beginning of the disaster.

      The most interesting thing is that the Americans and Europeans really messed with the uranium enrichment technology ... we have already exceeded the centrifuge for the 9th generation ... the TVEL output is several times cheaper than the American or European one and this is the cost of the electricity output is the cost of electricity generated goods is a whole chain of interconnected events .... Europeans and Americans fell into the so-called a fork when they can try to create such an enrichment technology for themselves by swelling billions and then trying to catch up with the Russian Federation or simply admit the fact of our superiority, score on this topic and put up with it.
      I repeat ... they if my memory serves me right .. centrifuges of the third generation can’t do, but in our country it’s already exceeded the 9th.

    Somehow it looks rotten. For the Americans put their treasures in the form of weapons-grade uranium into WAREHOUSES. And it was the uranium of the USSR that was exported !!!
    Yes, the address to the private firmochki minister Adamov. Which resold it and resold it. . .

    Even commenting is disgusting. The article is not just a "minus", this is a specific disinformation ....

    Yesaul, for the second time I’m putting it minus personally and specifically for you, if you are laying out the article, please participate in the polemic. I absolutely don’t understand the logic of your actions. Yes, I understand the time spent, somewhere you deprived yourself of the opportunity to rest, and then an interesting situation develops, you say visitors discuss without me and in the evening I’ll look at the forum and summarize. Like yesterday. Would you give us a lecture on high matters.
    In connection with the above reason, I refuse to read and do not consider it necessary to even comment.

    And it seems that according to the rules, each country that manufactures a nuclear power plant itself takes its spent fuel. Forgotten Germans with the French. they’ll bury their spent fuel at home, and then in the Baltic states of the nuclear power plant.

    In the energy sector, Rosatom will present Russia in foreign markets, which today has a portfolio of foreign orders worth more than $ 50 billion over the next 10 years. The number of contracts for the construction of nuclear power plants abroad is 21 units in nine countries.

    The article analyzes a little one-sidedly. Not only Russia and the USA have build reactors and have enrichment technology!
    The closest pursuer has 19 firm orders for the construction of a nuclear power plant. This market is fairly well divided and we should work hard to make someone give way!
    I'm not saying that African countries with their huge deposits of uranium are constantly entering the market.

      Greetings, colleague. For a comprehensive analysis of claims - no. There is a desire to show ONE OF the levers of influence on a potential enemy not only by military potential.

        esaul what leverage you're talking about. In your article about weapons-grade uranium, a blatant lie, designed to bring in a completely illiterate audience. No American weapons-grade uranium has ever been imported into Russia, this is nonsense. I represent the faces of the American senators who announced that the first cargo ship with weapons-grade uranium went to Russia ...
        Take a look at the work of the Gory-Chernomyrdin commission as a treacherous commission for Russia, and you will understand who and where to export weapons-grade uranium to, and for what pennies.
        And today we are experiencing a shortage of uranium for our nuclear power plants, the Krasnokamensky PIMCU provides only a third, the rest we buy from Kazakhstan and Australia.
        Your article is more like an attempt to justify the betrayal of the Yeltsin, and the current Kremlin, in the field of nuclear energy. Yes, and present this betrayal as a blessing.

    IMHO not nuclear waste to blame,
    what products were before beets cabbage potatoes tomatoes tomatoes cucumbers onions - from the neighboring area. local milk. and now? meat is not known to a greater extent, fish is from Norwegian farms at best, apples from Poland at best, corn from a genetically differentiated field, ice cream - poison. not a Soviet read, apples - what kind of apples are these that have been lying for months and DO NOT ROT! - even microbes cannot eat them. earlier in cabbage. aphids, bugs, - now - crystal freshness
    Eating is not clear what. because it’s full of patients, earlier the word allergy was not known at all
    and physical deviations, before leisure - the street, now - the Internet.
    and you say nuclear waste

    "And we have gas in our apartment." - this is really an economic lever, and nuclear power plants are shut down in Germany and Japan, new ones are not being built in the USA, so atomic raw materials are losing sales.


    But where does the portfolio of orders for 50 billion come from for the foreseeable 10 years?

    Here, Esaul tries to convince us that uranium is higher than the roof, and if we sell a bit, Russia will not become poor. Yes, and on Esaul, we kind of don’t sell our uranium, but we remake uranium from the USA laughing We heard about steamboats and railway trains carrying 500t. American uranium? So I have not heard.
    And everyone heard about the import of nuclear waste:
    "Mr. Vejonis said that Latvia will have to pay Russia about 300 thousand lats (about 420 thousand euros) for the processing and storage of waste. Foreign nuclear waste will again go to Russia, to the notorious Mayak plant.
    More details: http://www.bellona.ru/articles_ru/articles_2007/Salaspils "
    "This week, Russia and Iran signed an agreement to supply nuclear fuel to the Bushehr nuclear power plant and return the waste to Russia."
    http://www.rbcdaily.ru/market/562949979066559
    That's what they bring to us, and not weapons-grade uranium and plutonium !!!
    And 500, we sold OUR
    "The HEU-LEU program has disposed of 450 tons of Russian weapons-grade uranium. It is reasonable to expect that at the end of the program's period, Russia will transfer all the agreed 500 tons of weapons-grade uranium to the United States. I will point out right away that this uranium now provides about 12% of the world's demand for reactor uranium and 38% of the need for reactor uranium in the United States itself.

    More information at http://voprosik.net/prodazha-oruzhejnogo-urana-v-ssha-vygodna-rossii/ © QUESTION "

    We must remember that merchants rule our country and are primarily interested in personal enrichment, so you should not feel illusions about the sale of weapons-grade uranium (our uranium is sold, it is ours, belonging to the people of the Russian Federation and future generations. And it is on our land that nuclear waste is brought and our people will die out of them!
    And the position of Esaul - selflessly protecting the merchants destroying my Motherland is surprising in me.


    a little more about the poison imported into our country "for processing":

    In general, the problem of SNF disposal does not exist, the problem is far-fetched. The technology has long been proven and is very effective. In fact, spent nuclear fuel is a valuable raw material for the future of nuclear energy, based on a closed nuclear fuel cycle.
