Moscow, Russia. June 3, 2020.

Also, with only few months remaining until the Treaty's expiration, a continued absence of a political decision in Washington on extension, and the US presidential election looming on the horizon later this year, the study estimates the minimum time frame that would be required to complete all the bilateral and national procedures required for an extension of the last remaining Russian-US arms control treaty.

PROSPECTS FOR NUCLEAR POWER IN THE MIDDLE EAST: RUSSIA'S INTERESTS

January 18, 2016. Moscow, Russia.
Of all the nuclear energy newcomers, i.e. countries that have only just started to develop nuclear energy, Middle Eastern states are making the most dynamic progress. According to all the statements made by Middle Eastern leaders and senior officials in the late 2000s, there were plans to build approximately 90 nuclear power reactors at 26 sites (NPPs) in 13 states in the region over the following 20 years. The report, prepared by CENESS, focuses on analysis of history, distinctive features, and potential for nuclear energy development in individual Middle Eastern countries that are the most likely regional candidates to build NPPs in the foreseeable future; provides an estimate of impact made by events of regional and inner political instability and by the Fukushima nuclear accident, as well as points out Russia's potential role in the implementation of region's nuclear energy development plans.

ENDING HEU USE IN MEDICAL ISOTOPE PRODUCTION: OPTIONS FOR RUSSIAN-U.S. COOPERATION

Moscow, Russia - The Russian nuclear industry has set for itself an ambitious goal of becoming one of the three top global suppliers of Mo-99, which is used in 80 per cent of the medical procedures involving isotopes. Growing Russian production could help stabilize the global Mo-99 market, which faced severe shortages on several occasions in 2005-2013. It is therefore important to identify mechanisms that could enable Russia to achieve that goal, while at the same time facilitating the Russian industry's transition to new market requirements for producing Mo-99 without HEU.
