In Germany: Russians use our nuclear waste for military purposes

The supply of nuclear waste from Gronau to Russian territory can be controversial and illegal - according to the conclusions of the legal opinion, nuclear waste can be used for military purposes. This is reported by the correspondents of the German TV and Radio Company ARD on the Tagesschau website.

The shipment of nuclear waste to other countries contradicts the German legislative norms, and the remnants of the URENCO fuel production in Gronau fall under such a ban. However, according to the conclusions of URENCO specialists, this is not waste, but secondary raw materials - from it, with appropriate processing, new products can be obtained (for example, fuel for a nuclear power plant). But recyclable materials from depleted uranium fuel can also be a material for the production of shells with a special penetrating power.

The legal opinion drawn up on behalf of the Green Party states that the possibility of Russians using German nuclear waste for military purposes prohibits their transportation to the Russian Federation. This is also stipulated by the sanctions against Moscow due to the “annexation” of Crimea in 2014 - they do not allow the supply of dual-use products to Russia.

According to the opinion of the lawyer Wegener, Germany is not able to verify the data of the Russian Federation on the use of uranium. Deliveries were planned to Novouralsk, one of the few "closed cities" left from Soviet times, so it was concluded that depleted uranium might be used for military production.

    Let them store nuclear waste at home, in Germany. Best of all under the windows of the Green Party office. Potential mutations could lead to improved brain function in all these demoniac "Green Letters"

    With about 100 thousand tons of "depleted" uranium in stock, someone in Russia will be busy with highly radioactive waste. Moreover, after processing, all radioactive (and not) are returned to the country of origin. From Ukrainian stations, to Ukraine, from German - to Germany, from Swedish - to Sweden. And no matter who recycles, Russia, France, the United States - this is the order, keep your garbage at home.

    You need such a cow yourself!

    Green countries are against exporting nuclear waste from a country where they cannot process it!
    Yes, let them walk on it, admire and shine ...

    Oh, it seems the Americans have finally learned that nuclear fuel in Russia has a full cycle. Well, the German mongrels are in their repertoire.

    Ungrateful pigs. Instead of saying thank you for saving them from having to mess with their shit, the claims are also moving.
    Russia is the only country that has established a really operating closed, practically waste-free, cycle of work with nuclear fuel. Apparently the awareness of their own inferiority does not give the West peace.
