Shock? Russia owns 20% of all U.S. uranium reserves — Top Nuke Official: We are now mining in Wyoming… “This is something you probably couldn’t imagine some 3 or 4 years ago” (VIDEO)

Sergey Kirienko, head of Russian state nuclear agency Rosatom


Rosatom is primarily an element in this country’s nuclear defense capabilities. I know our policy makers’ outlook on this issue, and I’m sure Rosatom will never be privatized, because some of its industries cater to Russia’s nuclear arsenal. Such things are not for sale.


Some projects related to the civilian part of the nuclear industry are already open to private capital, including foreign interests. There are already quite a few private investors involved in uranium mining. Besides, we have been mining uranium not only in Russia for a long time now. You’ve mentioned the United States – well, we’re the largest owner of uranium deposits on US territory. Rosatom owns 20 percent of America’s uranium reserves. We are presently mining in the state of Wyoming, for example. This is something you probably couldn’t imagine some 3 or 4 years ago. Today, it’s reality.

    3-4 years ago… hmmm

    I'm not saying the cold war or even world war two was right, but what did all those people sacrifice they're lives for ?

    This is ridiculous and a criminal insult to the people that fought against the Soviets –

    The former enemy can now just come in and buy the resources of a country and exploit it, with little or no concern to the community or the environment. USA, you are being rorted from the inside out. Your system is seriously compromised – you have traitors in your ranks.

    To be honest, this has happened on a global scale. Organised crime is at the reins of all nations. They are ripping out the very founding principles of nations, break the heart, strip the body from within.

    Many may scoff at my idea, and think I'm only toying, but to me it seems the only explanation. There are criminal minds running the controls of the world. They can't be normal minds of reason, else we wouldn't be where we are.

    When I say the – I mean the Mob – mafia, yakuza and the russian mafia. Seriously bent minds, concerned with nothing but utter profit and their own selfish lives. The whole system has been infiltrated. I strongly believe this.

    The criminals realised, if you can't beat them, join them – then take over while their guard is down.

    In my opinion, until this paradigm is recognised, nothing can be done to stop the corrupt system that is taking us all down.

    You can't stop it if you can't see it.

    /major rant over.


      richard, you're observations are totally inline with mine and many others. This is a story that every citizen should be aware of.

      It would appear they've consolidated the world's resources under one-big umbrella and forgot to tell us we're now all simply a part of their new world order. I'd have no problem with such consolidation, except there's nothing being done to protect any of us or our property from their obvious greed. It's simply a one-way-street; their way and no other way…

    Osama Bin Laden and his Majuhideen fought the Soviets as an American CIA operative. Saddam Hussein was helped into power by the CIA to help secure oil for the British who had none before the Soviets could get their hands on it. Now we've cleared out the closet of a couple of uppity ghosts that could be embarrassing to both governments. WE didn't ever fight the Soviets. We got others to do it by proxy for us. That's why we called it the Cold War as opposed to a hot war. And, thus, the Military-Corporate-Industrial Complex was born. Now, we witness an environmental calamity being hidden in Japan as American designed nuclear power plants melt and news media in both countries owned by the nuclear industry, you guessed it, Westinghouse, GE, et al, somehow fail to cover the story and governments that could test for radiation, fail to do so. Many governments are criminal. "Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely". Even today, as the next American President takes away even more civilian rights, eavesdrops on even more millions of average Americans, secretly detains in undisclosed prisons hundreds more Americans without trials under the Patriot Act whichCongress voted for than the former president ever dared detain, and refuses more Freedom of Information Act requests than ALL other Presidents combined, and we are surprised when lies fill the headlines? Yet, Helen Coldicott says "you can stop them". She's right. Make clean energy lucrative. It's all about the…

    The entire US is for sale. Its' government, all the way down to our natural resources, are up for the highest bidder. There may be a few citizens in the middle with some morals, but not enough to stop the strip-mining of our national wealth.

    We have become a modern, industrialized third-world country, worth only what we can pull out of the ground. Our manufacturing laid to waste, our workforce mostly illiterate, our 'jobs of the future' fast food and low-wage care for the elderly, along with energy- and mineral-extraction.

    Just hope they don't discover nat gas nearby before the radiation gets you.


      another nice rant TIS. Good to see everybody (here) is awake…

      • richard richard

        All shockingly awake I'm afraid. You all have been stating it as it IS! We have to stop the "their way and no other way" and make it the new 'way.

        Where's goathead – I can just picture his avatar now, should be in this thread. It'd be good to hear from you mate.
