Mass media: in Moldova attempts to deliver radioactive raw materials to Islamists are stopped

30
Over the past 5 years, Moldovan intelligence agencies, in collaboration with the FBI, have stopped 4 from trying to sell radioactive materials on the black market to Islamic State militants and other terrorist groups, reports Lenta.ru report Associated Press post. Raw materials for the manufacture of "dirty bomb", allegedly exported from the Russian Federation.




“We can expect the continuation of such cases. As long as the smugglers think they can make a lot of money and not get caught, they will continue to do so. ”, - said the agency Moldovan investigator Konstantin Malik, who participated in the investigation of all episodes.

According to him, “in all cases intermediaries were detained, the key participants in the transactions evaded justice.”

“The last operation was carried out in February 2015. The radioactive cesium-137 was discovered in the cache, ”said Malik.

In 2001, criminals tried to sell a large amount of weapons-grade uranium to Sudan’s representatives. “They expected to sell ten kilograms of radioactive material. The mediator was arrested red-handed: at the sale of the sample, ”said the investigator.

According to the agency, the security forces cannot guarantee that the channel for the supply of radioactive materials to the black market is blocked.

“When dealing with nuclear smuggling on the black market, the Moldovan police used tactics of covert operations and high-tech equipment: from radiation detectors for clothing to micro recording devices. The investigation team in Moldova was dissolved due to the economic crisis in the country "- clarified edition.

According to the agency, representatives of Western intelligence agencies believe that the likelihood of the creation of biological or radioactive weapons quite high.

        Stop, stop, stop ... what the hell are 5 let.IHIL began its official activities with the proclamation of 29 June 2014 of the year. And Moldovans have been fighting IG for five years already ...laughing
        They could have concocted a fake at least decently. And then the Ukrainians immediately remembered who had caught the "terrorists" in Kharkov the day before the "terrorist attack." laughing

          It is elementary to establish the origin of radioactive substances, each substance has its own unique composition of isotopes. Obviously, the channel was organized by Ukrainian criminal groups from their nuclear facilities, which are under the protection of US "specialists". It's time for the IAEA to intervene.

      They are already trying to snatch a tuft of wool, if only against Russia. They grease the "true owners" and at the same time promote their special services - they say: "How cool we are, that we work with the FBI members together."

The raw materials for the manufacture of the "dirty bomb" were allegedly exported from the Russian FederationAgain we are to blame. What do you cry for, that only intermediaries were detained. Let the FBI turn to the FSB and they will find the seller (if any). By the way, ISIS disappointed me. We shouted men, we have a tactical atomic bomb, we will blow it up in the USA, we can even throw it into a volcano. Well, where is the promise. You are not men, the MAN SAID THE MAN MADE, and you are so yap.

      As with the Boeing, I did not have time to fall - Russia is already to blame. So here too, nothing has been investigated yet, but Russia has already been fastened. But what about the promises of this fat brute Gerashchenko to help ISIS? Surely it was he who took out radioactive materials from Chernobyl.

        By the way, if we talk about the source of radioactive waste, then Urkain is closer to Moldova than Russia ... But for some reason the silence about the possibility of these wastes from the territory of Urkain ...

    "The investigation group in Moldova was disbanded due to the economic crisis in the country," the newspaper said.

    This is so that the public does not know the real truth. Well, I do not believe that this is with the Russian Federation. From the country 404 easily. They in their mess can certainly do that.

    “They expected to sell ten kilograms radioactive material. The intermediary was arrested in the act: upon sale ten gram sample, ”said the investigator.

    Either the investigator is lying, or the author.

    Generally speaking, cesium and weapons-grade plutonium cannot be taken out in your pocket, it seems like it smells like a provocation or it just seems to me.

      As far as I remember, the only enterprise where it is theoretically possible to take this Cesium is NPO "Mayak". So, the "information" of the Moldovans about its origin is easily verified.

    ... "the investigation team in Moldova was disbanded due to the economic crisis in the country"
    It would be more honest to admit that the efficiency of the work does not suit the customers of this dirty business, so that terrorists would not disrupt the pastoral supplies. No wonder that periodically in the press rumors appeared about possible provocations by militias. And now we need compromising evidence also in Syria, although Europe may also pay.

    Actually, 10 kg U235 is not a dirty, but a completely "clean" atomic bomb, ala "Kid"! Moldovans live richly - if weapon-grade uranium is lying around in the trash heaps! what

    Idol galleries? Russia does not have a common border with Moldova. But Moldova has a common border with Ukraine, and the Ukrainians' love for green papers is well known.
