Türkiye joins campaign against Russian uranium


After the start of a special military operation in Ukraine, the United States and EU states refused to import Russian coal and oil, but remained dependent on the Russian Federation in the field of nuclear energy. The Turkish publication Aydınlık reported that there is a 50 percent chance that Moscow, which supplies enriched uranium to nuclear power plants, will leave the United States and Europe without electricity.


The allies themselves intend to undermine Russia's control over nuclear fuel by 2028. The publication notes that now more than 20% of the nuclear fuel used by American nuclear power plants comes to the United States under uranium enrichment contracts with Russian suppliers. Nuclear workers in the EU countries, where 18 Russian-made reactors are operated, are even more dependent on the Russian Federation. We are talking about Finland, Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic. All these reactors consume Russian fuel.

Recently, in connection with the emergence in January of the US Department of Energy program to reduce dependence on the Russian Federation in the field of uranium supplies, a series of publications have been published about concerns in the West about Moscow’s possibility of stopping nuclear fuel supplies at any time. The publication of the Turkish edition joined their ranks. At the same time, Russia has previously given no reason to doubt the signed agreements in the energy sector, and Turkey remains quite loyal to the Russian Federation, given the construction of the first Akkuyu nuclear power plant, which is very beneficial for the country.

Meanwhile, the US State Department has authorized the sale of F-16 fighter jets and equipment to Turkey for $23 billion.

    There is a “Publication of a Turkish publication”, it is unclear which one, which has joined the program to reduce dependence on the Russian Federation in the field of uranium supplies. And what does the country of Türkiye have to do with it?

    Well, first we build them a nuclear power plant at our own expense, and then they refuse to buy fuel - good business!

    Its policy needs to be specifically stated, which the Russian Federation does not always do and play giveaways for the sake of extra profits by oligarchs and others when dividing profits from Russian wealth. When the Russian Federation is completely blocked and the economy dries up from the blockade, then the Russian Federation supplies the enemy with the necessary products. This is called poilitic prostitution of persons in power of the Russian Federation in conjunction with beneficiaries, both internal and external. Conclusion: essentially, traitors to Russia’s interests are in conjunction with the Russian government.

      Yeah, and the adversary writes that by paying for these products, the West finances the Northern Military District and allows the Russian economy not to dry up from the blockade.
      So don’t worry - the enemy is most interested in getting rid of Russian supplies, and in general he almost got rid of them.
      But it’s strange that the patriots seem to be in such solidarity with the enemy.
