How Russia donated 8 trillion dollars worth of plutonium and uranium to the United States and did not regret


The so-called “Harvard Project”, developed by Western intelligence agencies in the 70s, pursued three main goals: to take control of the resources of 1/6 of the planet, to destroy the main enemy - the Soviet Union, and to leave the number of inhabitants on its territories necessary for the extraction of resources .


However, as it turned out later, during the implementation of the aforementioned plan, which, unfortunately, did not meet with opposition from the Soviet elites, the Americans managed to get another tangible “bonus”.

Thus, the United States, which during the Perestroika period became Russia's great "friend", politely "asked" for a reduction in strategic weapons. The then leaders gladly went to meet Western partners.

However, as you know, radioactive weapons-grade plutonium requires expensive disposal, which Russia did not have money for at that time. And here the Americans showed "concern", extending a helping hand to the "younger brother."

In 1993, the Mountain Chernomyrdin Treaty was signed, thanks to which Russia transferred 500 tons of enriched weapons-grade plutonium to the United States as fuel for American nuclear power plants. Moreover, in the framework of the same agreement, our country over the next years gave the United States another 14446 tons of low enriched uranium.

For all this wealth, the White House paid the Kremlin "full" $ 17 billion. At the same time, in the world market such an amount of valuable resource was worth 8 trillion at today's prices.

But the "Millennium Scam", which at one time became the source of superprofits and saved the US energy system, has become a "bear service" for the latter. Secured by uranium and plutonium for decades, the United States stopped developing its nuclear industry, which they have today remained at the 1990 level.

In turn, Russia threw all its forces into the development of appropriate of technologies and, as time has shown, has achieved exceptional results. Today we are in first place for uranium enrichment, Germany, the Netherlands and Britain shared the second place, combining their nuclear complex, and the third place went to China, which would never have achieved such results without Russia.

The United States, before the collapse of the USSR, took the 2nd place, fell back to 5th position, losing the 4th place to France. But that is not all. Things are pitiable with American nuclear power plants, which to this day are trying to “squeeze” the remaining power from outdated 2nd generation reactors.

At the same time, Russia in recent years has managed to modernize its production under the launch of modern fast neutron reactors. Obviously, the volume of plutonium and uranium that was actually donated to the United States, Russia still could not master. But the current situation forced us to invest in modern nuclear technologies, which today are an order of magnitude ahead of Western developments.

    How we love theft and betrayal to justify. Therefore, now all kinds of EBN centers are possible.

      Maybe I didn't understand something, where is the "justification" in the article? Or maybe I'm not paranoid?

    An interesting version, but bullshit. The Americans began to buy conversion uranium and plutonium from us for a simpler and more prosaic reason, so that the market would not collapse. Russia then began to actively sell "raw materials" and prices immediately collapsed. Our "reserves" were enough for them and for us with interest. Then "green energy" burst out in them, it is only in appearance that she is such a cute non-aggressive. And the northern fox came to their nuclear power. If they build reactors in our country, modernize the old ones, and run out of reserves, then everything is just stupidly closed. GAZPROM nods its head approvingly and rubs its hands in anticipation. The green boom was covered with a copper basin and it will take 8-12 years to build from scratch (features of the Western industry, they are not involved in the modernization of production in principle, they just build new plants instead of those that have exhausted their resource) of the nuclear cycle. And then there are oil and gas workers who insert scrap into the wheels at every opportunity. Business, nothing personal.

      Brad! We had no reason to sell weapons-grade plutonium and uranium! We have our own nuclear power plants and nuclear facilities. And where is the "green" energy? She's not a nuclear competitor. Too different powers.

        Of course, not a competitor. Everyone understood this. But! Globalists brought the main energy-intensive industries to Asia, planning for the United States a financial post-industrial empire. There is enough green energy for this. Not fused.

          Murk. Let me explain it easier. "Green" energy is a competitor to hydrocarbon energy and economically viable only at high oil prices, over $ 100 / bbl. Hence the "did not grow together".

    They said the same thing about Thatcher, about Sobyanin, about Chubais, about ..Orbakayn like, and about the heap ....

    But in fact, they all profiled themselves - there the appreciative fukalschiki EBN centers built and are building ..

    In any case, we have lost much more than we gained. And this betrayal of our "elites", by the way, who considered themselves the most loyal communists, does not justify. First of all, they betrayed the people of their country, and this is much worse than anything else. So "Yeltsin and his comrades" will remain traitors to the country for the rest of history. And the United States, if it sets a goal, will restore its nuclear industry much faster than we can imagine. There are simply no such conditions now. All led by Greta Tumperg for "green" energy. But this is a completely different question.

    Russian morons ... First they presented weapons-grade plutonium "for so", and now they are pretending to be "smart" ...
    And if Russia didn’t get new ultra-fast centrifuges? And if the United States did not dissolve its nuclear industry?
    Say thank you that it so happened that the United States lost its nuclear industry because it is also morons ...

    That is, if Russia hadn’t sold \ donated plutonium and uranium, then couldn’t it be possible to create reactors with fast neurons? I don’t see the logic ... There was a banal betrayal, and plunder ...

    Russia could sell all this more expensive if the country was led by professionals and patriots of the Russian Federation, rather than six US, bribe takers and crooks!

    After the collapse of the USSR, the Harvard project was replaced by the CIA's "Houston Project". The goals have not changed. Only the performer has changed. Instead of Gorby and EBN, Mr. Putin became responsible for the collapse of the Russian Federation and the genocide of the people. We wish him many years of rule and new breakthroughs for the good of the United States.

    The Gor-Chernomyrdin agreement is a consequence CAPITULATIONS OF THE USSR IN THE COLD WAR! In December 1989 This agreement was aimed at DISARMAMENT OF THE USSR, just like the shameful Treaty of Versailles for Germany.

    Enriched uranium, and not its derivatives, is of interest to Americans.
    Therefore, it needs consolidation with Russia in this regard.

    - And the fact that today, for trillions of dollars, Russia has contracted to make gifts ... to China ... - and a free forest; both oil and gas (consider that they are also free); military technology (also for nothing); the latest weapons (at a bargain price); purchases of countless mountains of Chinese junk and all kinds of Chinese crafts; numerous orders to the Chinese for any little thing that can easily be done at Russian enterprises (here Russia also bows to the Chinese in the belt); handing over to China a complete "blank check" for Chinese workers and specialists to flood Russian enterprises and open Chinese enterprises in Russia, and so on. and so on ... - And who needs the "Silk Road" road through the territory of Russia (through which any epidemic from China is imported ... - even a coronavirus, even a bird flu, etc.) ... - And what about Russia? ... - she could not organize her own "Russian way"; from Russian goods ... - metal products; clothes made of flax, hemp stalks and other organic plants (which will immediately become in demand in Europe); wood products and various "semi-finished products"; all kinds of flour and cereals; high-octane and various petrochemical mixtures and products from hydrocarbons ... etc. etc ... - Yes, there would be a desire ... and there would be no "traitors" ...
    - And what is the use of blaming and discussing the accomplished betrayal and crime ...

    Before writing such nonsense, the author should clarify the essence of the issue. What is he in general? 8 trillion dollars - why not 25? The charlatan pulled pieces of the same nonsense from the Internet and gives it out as his wise thoughts. This question has long been examined on all points and those who wish can find out.

    All conspiracy theories, real and not so, are rooted in the works of one mad grandfather. In general, from everything written by Bzezhinsky, for a general understanding, two books should be read - "The Great Chessboard" and "Between Two Ages". Science fiction writers with their dystopias nervously smoke on the sidelines.
