Saakashvili accused Russia of supplying highly enriched uranium to the Caucasus

2010-04-22 12:56

President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili accused Russia "of creating unstableness". According to RBK, in the opinion of the Georgian leader, the unstableness enables the smugglers to deliver the highly enriched uranium to the Caucasus.


In his interview to the Associated Press agency, the president confirmed the information about the recently intercepted consignment of the highly enriched uranium. He did not specify the possible source of the trafficking, having mentioned that it "mostly comes from Russia".

The president just stated that Abkhazia and South Ossetia that proclaimed their independence have become the "black holes" in the field of the regional safety. The Georgian leader underlined that Russia should be responsible for maintaining control of the nuclear weapon distribution in these territories so long as "it has occupied them". In his opinion, the incidents with the highly enriched uranium threaten Georgia's safety.

Afterwards, Saakashvili underlined that Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin left no hope to restore the Soviet Union in any form. In this aspect, Moscow keeps "constantly playing its geopolitical games" around Georgia, the Georgian leader assured.

Let us remind you that on April 14, Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia disseminated the information about the detention of a foreign group by the local security officials this March. The foreign citizens were found to have a small amount of highly enriched uranium on them. The Georgian party has already reported the incident to the International Nuclear Power Agency. The confiscated radioactive substances are kept in a safe place.
