Is Putin guilty? .. The South Carolina state authorities filed a lawsuit against the US federal government for non-compliance with the agreement with the Russian Federation on the disposal of surplus weapons-grade plutonium

In the edition Aiken Standard It is reported that the authorities of the US state of South Carolina sued the US federal government. The lawsuit alleges that official Washington is not in compliance with agreements previously reached with Moscow on disposing of surplus weapons-grade plutonium.


Is Putin guilty? .. The South Carolina state authorities filed a lawsuit against the US federal government for non-compliance with the agreement with the Russian Federation on the disposal of surplus weapons-grade plutonium


The prosecutor of South Carolina stated that a lawsuit had already been filed, the main requirement of which is to fulfill obligations by the United States authorities to dispose of weapons-grade plutonium, the amounts of which (disposal) were discussed with Russia.

At the same time, bewilderment is expressed that Russia is in fact observing such an agreement with the United States unilaterally.

Earlier in the US State Department stated that Washington "does not violate the agreement with the Russian Federation." Translation of the statement by the official representative of the US Foreign Office leads newspaper Kommersant:

The agreement, which the United States and Russia signed in 2000, gives the parties the opportunity to consult and negotiate on disposal methods and does not contain binding terms. The US has not violated this agreement, and the assumption of the opposite does not correspond to reality. We are fully committed to fulfilling our obligations under the agreement.


Generally speaking, today it is extremely difficult to find an agreement that the US has not yet managed to break. Given the fact that any international agreement for the United States stands after national legislation, the practice of violating international obligations for Washington has long ago become the norm.

        This is the United States and they believe that it is not necessary for them, but someone worked very well with the state authorities.

          And what does it have to do with it!
          It has a certain concept - SCAM!
          Do you know what a contract, agreement or agreement is and have you ever heard of what it meant to Russian merchants to disrupt the terms of a contract or agreement ???
          For them, it was a loss of image and they could put an end to their activities. No one has ever worked as a huckster with such grief, all their gesheft needs to be thought out before they "shake hands".

      Everything is apparently simpler. Most likely, the tender for disposal by the relevant American company in the USA under a plutonium disposal agreement was won. Capacities were built, workers recruited ... But federal money did not reach the contractor, as did plutonium lol

      Well, why so ... I myself have not read this agreement, but if the terms for its implementation are not really spelled out (a question for developers on our part) - how can I demand its execution at the moment. Then this is an agreement of intent, and no more. And making a claim is ridiculous. DO NOT CONFUSE with the Contract - in which the terms are usually prescribed.

      Do not confuse the statuses of states in the United States and regions in Russia. These are two big differences. They only shout in international relations: "We are the USA - the state." And inside, a rabble of regions with their own laws. Even the criminal law of each state is different. Those. there is a right, there is a national one. And the local somewhere allows you to ask the federal authorities - And how do you perform this and that.

      I don’t know about the prosecutor, but an ordinary citizen of Russia is quite.

      A resident of the city of Balakovo, Nikolai Suvorov, filed a lawsuit in the Arbitration Court of the Saratov Region with a request to remove Vladimir Putin from office. The court accepted the application for consideration.

      So the question is "past the cash register".

      PS))) If the prosecutor did not file a lawsuit against the president, then this does not mean that he does not have such a right hi

        And he refused.
        The Arbitration Court of the Saratov Region terminated proceedings on the claim of a resident of Balakovo Nikolai Suvorov, who asked to dismiss Vladimir Putin from the post of President of the Russian Federation "as an enemy of the people, a friend of oligarchs and officials, for the plundering of Russia and the impoverishment of the Russian people, for the enrichment of officials, bankers, billionaire robbers" ... As stated in the definition of arbitration, courts have no right to interfere with the activities of the Russian president.

    Plutonium is very tight in the World. The entire fuel 235y ends, so it’s logical to keep it from spending as soon as it gets. Besides, 235y is space fuel, and the USA does not exclude that it will have to be thrown from the ground, which is why uranium is lived.

    This is weapons-grade plutonium. And only we have the technology of processing into reactor fuel, just like the plutonium-fuel reactors themselves. Remember the story with the heat energy source at Curiosity? The Yankees had to order this unit from the Russian Federation, since neither technology nor knowledge on this subject they haven’t. The tricky thing was that at 90% enrichment and plutonium there was clean plutonium, with those sizes of the block in the normal state it should tear. Something like that. Yes, and in general, experts say that all the working uranium has already been chosen and it’s time to switch to closed fuel chains. And we only have such a reactor in one copy. We only started to build a second one.

    Hmm ... I read the comments of people who are not even aware of the international program between the United States and Russia for the disposal of weapons-grade plutonium, the so-called "VOUNOU" agreement. But in fact, everyone in Russia just created a technology to convert weapons-grade plutonium into low-enriched fuel for US nuclear power plants, according to calculations, every tenth light bulb there is lit by Russian plutonium. That's all the arithmetic.

    It’s high time to steal all the MILITARY agreements with NATO and the USA! All the same, they find a bunch of excuses to fulfill them only in a manner favorable to them! And we are like fools. we fulfill them, even to our own detriment! This situation is very similar to the one before the war. The Wehrmacht already crossed our border, and our trains with coal and food continued to go towards the Germans ... Although, there is one more option: to start doing as the Americans do - treat all these agreements EXCLUSIVELY in their favor, and act accordingly! And to the indignant cries from across the ocean to give such clever formal replies that they now give us, and at the same time refer to the fact that they are doing the same! It would be a complete finish for NATO! laughing

    Capitalism has no national interests. There is interest in making a profit, super-profits up to "selling my mother." Therefore, the Russian Federation will never put on the United States. Rotten capitalists have started up in our country for a long time. Can't you see? The price of gasoline famously shows the appetites of fucking homebrew capitalists.

    "It is extremely difficult to find an agreement that the US has not yet violated."
    And Putin is to blame for everything - iron logic, it is not possible to disagree. "Tin".

    There is a difference between the priority of national law and compliance with international obligations. One does not exclude the other. The author confuses these concepts.

    Given the fact that any international agreement for the United States stands after national law

    This is normal. I’ll even say more: it should be so if the state does not want to be called a colony.
    Unfortunately, our international is a priority even when it is not consistent with internal interests.
