In , the U. However, at a July summit with President Obama in Moscow, President Medvedev made a commitment to conduct feasibility studies into the conversion of reactors in Russia. This suggested that Moscow would move to convert its reactors after the completion of the feasibility studies, as LEU fuel for the types of reactors being studied had already been developed to convert Soviet-supplied reactors abroad.

In December , U.

Currently, activities beyond the scope of those agreed to before the fall of have been put on hold. Russia still relies on HEU to produce medical isotopes. When the High Level Group on the Security of Supply of Medical Isotopes met in July , the Russian delegation stated that Russia would switch its targets to LEU in its medical isotope manufacturing process by ; however, this declaration was not an official Russian position statement, and did not exclude the possible use of HEU as a reactor fuel.

Stopping Nuclear Terrorism

Representatives have suggested as recently as that the conversion could be accomplished through a pilot program in Furthering this effort, in February , during a U. Within Russia itself, progress has been slower. Only one Russian site has been reportedly cleaned out of all HEU materials. With the assistance of the U.

These included the first three Nuclear Security Summits ; however, Russia did not attend the fourth and final summit. It is telling that Moscow envisioned a business opportunity in expanding its HEU-based production of medical isotopes and invested funds in a processing facility based on this assumption , despite an emerging global norm to move away from using HEU for this purpose. Department of Energy. The threat posed by HEU has also been reduced by bolstering the security systems of icebreakers, some reactors, and some fuel cycle facilities.

Interviews with Russian officials suggest that the U. Kuperman, ed. Guarino, "U. Guarino, "New U. Response," Global Security Newswire, 17 August , www. Struyev, S. Kosmin, and I. New York: Routledge, , pp. Although Russia has recognized the proliferation implications of HEU in numerous official statements, it continues to weigh this against the commercial benefits of civil HEU use, including revenues from isotope production and HEU fuel export for foreign research reactors.

Overall, Russia has focused less on the conversion of reactors inside of Russia, and more on the conversion of Soviet and Russian-supplied reactors. In , the U. However, at a July summit with President Obama in Moscow, President Medvedev made a commitment to conduct feasibility studies into the conversion of reactors in Russia.

The most difficult challenge for a terrorist organization seeking to build a nuclear weapon or improvised nuclear device is obtaining fissile material, either plutonium or highly enriched uranium HEU. The large stocks of HEU in civilian use, many not adequately protected, are thus one of the greatest security risks facing the global community at present.

- NUCLEAR TERRORISM

This book contains chapters examining the various uses for this material and possible alternatives; the threat posed by this material; the economic, political and strategic obstacles to international efforts to end the use of HEU for commercial and research purposes; as well as new national and international measures that should be taken to further the elimination of HEU.
