Radioactive waste returns back to Russia

As it has become known, the dangerous load contains about 200 kilograms of highly enriched uranium, and 100 more kilograms of 10-15% enriched uranium. The radioactive auto convoy started their journey from the Research Centre in Rossendorf to load the container with radioactive waste on a Russian cargo plane IL-76 waiting in Dresden Airport. Apart from local policemen, the security of transportation was also provided by the federal police.
      In accordance with the Russian Research Reactor Fuel Return (RRRFR) programme the enriched uranium is returning to Russia, which supplied the nuclear staff to the Rossendorf Experimental Reactor in the former GDR some time ago.
      The whole procedure, which costs 1 million Euro, is fully financed by Germany.
