Russia to dispose 34 tons of plutonium

The USA and Russia are to dispose 34 tons of plutonium each, the USA covering Russian expenses for converting plutonium into peaceful energy.
      On Monday the two sides announced that Russia would dispose of 34 tons of plutonium from its weapons program by converting it into mixed oxide fuel that would be used to generate electricity. The United States would dispose of an equal amount of plutonium under the agreement.
      The Plutonium Management and Disposition Agreement has been signed in 2000, but till now neither of the sides has managed to fulfill it.
      Under the plan, Russia agreed to process plutonium in two fast breeder reactors at Beloyarsk nuclear power plant beginning in 2012. Only one of the reactors is currently operating. The other is under construction.
      The States would pay $400 million to help cover Russia's costs.
