    Most likely the reason as to why no sanctions on nuclear industry. Interesting article.

    Russia's Stranglehold On The World's Nuclear Power Cycle

    Since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, several packages of sanctions targeting Russia’s lucrative energy industry (mostly oil, gas, and coal) have been introduced by the United States, the European Union, and other Western nations. These countries are also undertaking efforts to wean themselves off their dependency on Russian energy supplies.

    Russia is among the five countries with the world’s largest uranium resources. It is estimated to have about 486,000 tons of uranium, the equivalent of 8 percent of global supply.

    Yet, the country is a relatively small producer of raw uranium. In 2021, it produced just about 5 percent of the world’s uranium from mines.

    However, uranium mining is just one piece of the nuclear process. Raw uranium is not suitable as fuel for nuclear plants. It needs to be refined into uranium concentrate, converted into gas, and then enriched. And this is where Russia excels.

    In 2020, there were just four conversion plants operating commercially -- in Canada, China, France, and Russia. Russia was the largest player, with almost 40 percent of the total uranium conversion infrastructure in the world, and therefore produced the largest share of uranium in gaseous form (called uranium hexafluoride).

    The same goes for uranium enrichment, the next step in the nuclear cycle. According to 2018 data (the latest available), that capacity was spread among a handful of key players, with Russia once again responsible for the largest share -- about 46 percent.

    Therefore, Russia is a significant supplier of both uranium and uranium enrichment services. According to the latest available data, the European Union purchased about 20 percent of its natural uranium and 26 percent of its enrichment services from Russia in 2020. The United States imported about 14 percent of its uranium and 28 percent of all enrichment services from Russia in 2021.

    Nuclear reactors made in Russia are known as VVER -- an abbreviation for the Russian vodo-vodyanoi enyergeticheskiy reactor (water-water energetic reactor). These reactors use water both as a coolant and as a moderator and were originally developed in the Soviet Union

    Currently, there are 11 countries where various types of VVERs are operating, including Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Finland. On top of that, other countries such as Egypt, Turkey, and Argentina currently have these reactors under construction or plan to build them.

    Russia is considered the world leader when it comes to the export of nuclear plant development. Between 2012 and 2021, Rosatom initiated construction of 19 nuclear reactors; 15 of these were initiated abroad. That is far more than the next most prolific providers: China, France, and South Korea. Although China started building 29 reactors during the same period, only two of them were initiated abroad. France started building two reactors abroad, and South Korea four.

    To keep the reactors operating, plants need a regular supply of nuclear fuel -- usually a certain type of fuel. And this is where another level of dependency on Russia can be observed. Although there are several suppliers on the market, the Russian TVEL Fuel Company is currently the only authorized supplier of fuel needed for VVER-440s.

    Therefore, certain countries rely on Russian deliveries and could risk temporarily halting operations at their facilities. For example, Slovakia has four of these nuclear reactors; the Czech Republic has two.

    Westinghouse, an U.S. nuclear power company, is already seeking ways to offer alternative fuel in Europe, but it will take some time to get all the licenses and approvals. In addition, there are concerns that fuel from the United States might be more expensive, and it is unclear how Westinghouse would handle the waste-management system.

    Russia is also able to supply high-assay low-enriched uranium (also known as HALEU). It is a type of fuel that will be needed for more advanced reactors that are now under development by many companies across the United States. The main difference from the fuel that is currently being used is the level of uranium enrichment. Instead of up to 5 percent uranium-235 enrichment, the new generation of reactors needs fuel with up to 20 percent enrichment.

    According to the American Office of Nuclear Energy, HALEU availability is crucial for the development and deployment of reactors. The fuel is now available in the United States in limited quantities, and Washington is seeking options to fund research and development of new fuel sources. At the moment, the only supplier able to provide the fuel on a commercial scale is Russia’s Tenex (owned by the Russian state-owned company Rosatom).

    Selling nuclear technology is also part of Russia’s effort to gain influence and reap profits in countries that are new to nuclear energy. One of the reasons countries want to cooperate with Russia is that it offers a “whole package” solution. Russia can not only build a nuclear plant and supply fuel, but it also trains local specialists, helps with safety questions, runs scholarship programs, and disposes of radioactive waste.

    However, offering attractive loans is probably Russia’s most powerful tool. These loans are usually backed by government subsidies and cover at least 80 percent of construction costs. For example, Russia has already lent $10 billion to Hungary, $11 billion to Bangladesh, and $25 billion to Egypt -- all to build nuclear power plants.

    Russia has operating nuclear reactors in 11 countries, and more are under construction or being planned. Besides that, Russia has also signed either memorandums of understanding or intergovernmental agreements with at least 30 countries around the world, mostly in Africa. These serve as a declaration of interest in nuclear technology or set an intention to cooperate on the building of nuclear plants, respectively.

    Some experts warn that African countries might not be ready for nuclear power, but Russia argues that the technology represents an answer to the continent’s increasing demand for electricity. It is also worth noting that African countries represent the largest voting bloc in the United Nations, which might be another reason for Russia to strengthen its ties in the region.

    On August 27, Budapest confirmed that Russia’s Rosatom will start building two new nuclear reactors in Hungary. This information came amid mutual accusations by Ukraine and Russia of shelling Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhya nuclear plant. Zelenskiy has warned of the threat of a radiation leak and accused Russia of "nuclear blackmail." Meanwhile, Russia blocked the adoption of a final document after a monthlong UN review of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, saying it lacked "balance" amid its criticism of Russia’s occupation of Zaporizhzhya.

    US propaganda drivel. Westinghouse reactors use Westinghouse specific fuel rods and fuel mixtures. But in the case of Russia it is all nefarious.

    Funny how butthurt westerners always ignore the little thing called: shop where you want to. Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty makes it
    sound like Russia's customers have a gun to their head. This is the vaunted western love for competition and technology. When they
    lose on the free market in the nuclear power sector, they cry about Russian blackmail and coercion.

    By the end of the fourth day of the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the Andreevsky sector of the Nikolaevsko-Krivoy Rog direction, the initiative was intercepted by the RF Armed Forces.

    The Russian Aerospace Forces destroyed the command post of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Bereznegovatoy and attacked the position area of ​​​​the HIMARS MLRS and Tochka-U OTRK in the vicinity of the settlement.

    All three pontoon crossings of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were put out of action: the enemy is trying to force the Ingulets ford. The scattered forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine located on the southern coast were squeezed into a cauldron and cut off from the northern group of troops.

    According to local residents, there are battles in Ternivka: the RF Armed Forces managed to break the defensive orders of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the other side and go on the offensive.

    A massive fire defeat is inflicted on the Ukrainian troops trapped in the cauldron.

    Ukrainian infantry gets MLRS’d in the Kherson direction. Ukrainians are so successful in their offensive that they took a Russian Armed Forces video, filmed by an Orlan-10 and try to pass this off as Russian Armed Forces soldiers getting destroyed by “super accurate MLRS work of our troops” — however it was geolocated, this is the Ukrainian 28th separate mechanized brigade getting destroyed in the Kherson direction.

    Fatal defeat of the Ukrainians at Kerson. Western media silenced. Getting closer to the end of the murderous regime of the Jewish pig Zielinsky.

    Putin is right not to go to the funeral of Gorbachev's incompetent traitor.

    meh... another stoopid empty-head know-nuffin whose opinion is worth precisely nothing.  Russia and her supporters need to ignore all fools like this and simply keep grinding this vile Kiev putsch regime out of existance, while extending an raised index finger to all western elites.  Let 'em puke their hate nonsense while Russia wins on the battlefield and erases 404 from existence.  In the months to come, they will be doing more of the same, only with more hysteria, while sitting hungry in the cold and dark Razz

    Iron Maidens "The Trooper", while inspired by the Charge of the Light Brigade, could also have been written especially for the Ukrop pit-slaves forced to fight in the Great Kherson Meat-Grinder 2022. Bruce Dickinson must have been prescient...

    {1st verse omitted}

    The bugle sounds, the charge begins
    But on this battlefield, no one wins
    The smell of acrid smoke and horses' breath
    As I plunge on into certain death

    The horse, he sweats with fear, we break to run
    The mighty roar of the Russian guns
    And as we race towards the human wall
    The screams of pain as my comrades fall

    We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
    And the Russians fire another round
    We get so near, yet so far away
    We were meant to fight another day

    We get so close, near enough to fight
    When a Russian gets me in his sights
    He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
    A burst of rounds take my horse below

    And as I lay there gazing at the sky
    My body's numb and my throat is dry
    And as I lay forgotten and alone
    Without a tear, I draw my parting groan

    Getting rid of the Ukrainian forces near Donetsk will at least stop the shelling of civilians in Donetsk city and surrounding areas.

    It IS taking way too long, and this silly bridge issue is frankly pathetic.

    It is where the bulk of their army was located and they have sent more reinforcements since then and they are intermingled with civilians... how long do you think it should take?

    Right now they are in control. They are grinding up enemy forces and not suffering heavy losses themselves... the Orcs don't have endless supplies of good trained men... this attack on the NPP probably just got rid of a good number of those troops that were training in the UK with other EU countries helping with training too... maybe the ability to hold their breath might have been more useful training for crossing rivers...

    After the attack Zelensky complained that a demilitarised zone had not been created around the NPP... wonder why he would think that was a problem?

    It seems he wanted some Ukrainian reporters to go in with the IAEA teams but Russia rejected them as being very fit looking young men that were likely recently trained in the UK.

    Lets put it all together... Zelensky wanted it to be demilitarised and to send special forces disguised as reporters with the IAEA and sent seven landing boats and two large barges of troops to capture the power plant...

    It ended up as a blood bath...

    some of the Nazi's that attacked the nuclear powerplant.
    Given a one-way Ticket to Bandera.

    These will be those specially trained troops they had in the UK with Swedish or Finnish extra training on top I guess...


    The longer the conflict takes, the longer the EU/UK/US have to suffer from their crazy energy sanctions against Russia, and the more export profit Russia makes to pay for the war.

    That is another aspect too... when this conflict ends there are lots of western countries that will want to go back to the way things were last year or the year before... like they hadn't just helped and funded attempts to murder Russians and pro Russian Ukrainians.

    Hope Russia and Putin don't allow that.

    What are they? Assume this is the Su-35S in fighter bomber mode.

    Gliding bombs. Guided.

    It is highly unlikely that a small group of Ukrainian forces launched an unsupported attack to recapture the ZNPP.

    It is very unlikely.... who could possibly be that stupid? Twisted Evil

    Including the military grade dashboart/cockpit clocks Twisted Evil

    Why buy them when you can pick them out of the wreckage of the Orc air fleet for free... Twisted Evil

    Show me drel, grom, Kh-38 and R-77M usage, and ill be calm. This is a great start though.

    They wont want to show exactly what they are using but of course they will be using all of these weapons if only to test them.

    They will have a range of targets from easy to tricky depending on where they are and what the situation is.

    For the easy stuff they want to hit over and over again then cheap existing munitions will be favoured, but more difficult targets will require standoff weapons like grom I and grom II... the former rocket powered and 120km ranged to enter enemy held territory and hit point targets, but sometimes well protected targets or larger stronger targets will require more HE power so grom II or perhaps even a few KAB-1500s might be used to get the job done.

    Regarding AAMs I would say older missiles first as long as they are working... I rather think the aircraft the Ukraine are using don't really have much in the way of self defence avionics, so even old R-27s would do the job most of the time... they could also be used against drones.

    BTW Regarding Drel, not sure they want guided cluster bombs in this conflict... the west would cry a river of tears over cluster bombs.

    They showed H47M2 "Kinzhal", K-310 Yakhont (K-300P), H-101, and there is no such missiles in the arsenal of the US Army. Man, the most perfect missile in the world right now is surely the 3M22 Zircon. And you write about the "drill" bomb...
    The air force of Ukroshitstan is not worth the K-77M (izdeliye 180) missiles, although the Russians stated that the Su-57 was used over the skies of Ukroshitstan. Do you LIMB think that you are really important for the Russians to show and prove something to you?

    K-77M; there is NO "R-77M" variant in the VVS. No data on operational status. This missile comes bundled with the Su-57 first, perhaps for the Su-35S and Su-30SM2 as well. I wouldn't rule out the MiG-31BM/BSM either (BSM; no in-flight refueling tube but the rest of the equipment is at the level of the BM variant).

    For the people that think Russia isn´t using sophisticated weapons.

    Show me drel, grom, Kh-38 and R-77M usage, and ill be calm. This is a great start though.

    Rybar and Voenkotenok reported multiple times that russian aircraft have virtually 0 access to the Kh-38, and that the grom actually hasn't passed tests yet. I trust them more than you regarding Russian arms procurement.

    BTW Regarding Drel, not sure they want guided cluster bombs in this conflict... the west would cry a river of tears over cluster bombs.

    To use against Ukrainian SPGs, tank attacks in kherson and wipe out himars.

    If the Russians delivered all the planned contracts for the delivery of front-line aviation; Su-30SM/34/35S (I won't even count Su-27SM3, Su-30M2, MiG-29K/KUB) then how is it possible that you and Rybar are right about H-38 or "drill" bomb? That makes no sense to me.
    Therefore, the Russians are also lying about the deliveries of the S-400, Iskander, K-300P Bastion-P, H-101, etc. I will no longer follow what the Russians say, I will follow what you and Rybar write.
    The Russians are only late in building a navy, while everything else is BS.

    🤡When Nazism is visible even through French media filtering

    The French tried to shoot a report about a brave patriot boy saluting the armed Forces, but in the end they showed the true essence of Ukraine.

    The result was a report about two girls throwing a zig.And after that, the West and our liberals will tell us that there is no Nazi propaganda in Ukraine?

    Shmyhal says Ukraine is ready to supply electricity to Germany

    The Prime Minister of Ukraine noted that thanks to the country's nuclear power plants, it can generate large amounts of electricity
    BERLIN, September 3. /tass/. Ukraine exports electricity to a number of EU countries and is ready to start deliveries to Germany. This was stated by Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmygal in an interview with the DPA news agency, published on Saturday.

    "Currently, Ukraine exports electricity to Moldova, Romania, Slovakia and Poland. But, of course, we are also ready to include Germany in our exports, " Shmygal said.

    He noted that thanks to nuclear power plants, Ukraine can generate large amounts of electricity. "I will raise this issue during my visit to Berlin and then to Brussels," the Prime Minister said.

    According to the agency, after the synchronization of the Ukrainian and European energy networks in mid-March, Ukraine exports from 400 to 700 MW of electricity to the EU and Moldova every day. Now, as Shmygal noted, the country wants to increase supplies to the European Union. "It will be good for both sides. The EU will get energy, and we will get the currency that we urgently need, " the Prime Minister said.

    https://tass.ru/ekonomika/15637307

    >> More evidence about what is going on with ZNPP. A 5.7 GW baseload generation, high capacity factor asset is not inconsequential, even for Europe as a whole. Of course the ukies would get the shaft and simply be left to freeze, but who cares, they are slated for sacrifice by their Western partners already... censored

    Summary of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on the progress of a special military operation on the territory of Ukraine ⚡ ️ (03.09.2022)


    Part 1 (see part 2)

    The Kiev regime continued its unsuccessful attempts to gain a foothold in certain areas of the Mykolaiv-Kryvyi Rih direction.

    Part 2 (see part 1)

    Despite the presence of IAEA representatives at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, the Kiev regime once again attempted to seize the nuclear power plant.

    On September 2, at about 23 hours Moscow time,two groups of boats and motorboats totaling 42 units with a landing force of over 250 people from the special operations forces and foreign mercenaries attempted to land on the coast of the Kakhovsky reservoir in the area of Energodar and Dneprorudny.

    The Russian Air Force attacked the landing force with four Su-30s and two Ka-52 helicopters, which destroyed 20 boats and boats. The rest of the boats turned around and left in the direction of the Ukrainian coast.

    Russian artillery , including high-power Malka howitzers, struck the Ukrainian coast near the settlements of Verkhetarasovka and Chervonodniprovka, where the remnants of the landing party came ashore.

    According to available information, during the failed provocation, Ukrainian nationalists lost 47 militants killed, including 10 foreign mercenaries, and 23 wounded.

    🇬🇧🇺🇦 The battle for Kherson: the situation on the Andreevsky site
    as of 11.00 September 3 of the year

    Attempts by the Armed Forces of Ukraine to restore the crossings near Andreevka, Lozovoye and Bolshoy Artakovo were unsuccessful: the grouping on the southern bank of the Ingulets remained cut off from supply lines.

    After the transfer of reinforcements to Bereznegovatoe, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine decided to release the remnants of the group on the opposite bank.

    Leaving about 40 pieces of equipment in reserve northeast of Bereznegovatoy, the remaining units launched a counteroffensive through Ternovka and the Russian crossing to the south coast. By morning, the Armed Forces of Ukraine managed to cross to the other side of the river and start fighting for Blagodatovka.


    To date, it has not been possible to connect with the remnants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine blocked on the southern coast, battles are going on for Blagodatovka.

    Throughout the night, the Russian Aerospace Forces, units of the missile forces and artillery continued to inflict fire damage on the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine squeezed into the boiler on the southern bank of the Ingulets.

    -----

    The energodar banzai charges are a shitshow for sure

    But this takes the cake, a land assault , where Ukraine has superiority in manpower, and they get cauldroned and bulldozed by FAB

    They bagged themselves and get hit over the head

    BTW VKS had not run these missions before, so it's obvious some change was implemented due to the attacks

    Anyway these guys just lost several brigades in this imbecile operation

    The pacing of the Russian campaign is probably deliberate to roast Biden's chestnuts. Biden's latest rant about 75 million enemies of the people indicates
    advanced desperation. The NATzO talk about Russia's economy failing in the fall and it running out of shells and missiles appears to be driven by the need
    to convince enough voters that things are OK. So it makes sense for Russia to have the heat on "low" until October before the US mid term elections and
    stage something big to mess up the Kiev regime just before the elections. Biden's handlers clearly do not want this to happen.

    Of course, the pacing is also justified for other reasons. Much less losses in Russian men and equipment and much more losses by the Kiev regime in its pathetic
    human wave counteroffensives. The Kiev regime is depleting its forces stationed in Odessa so grabbing it later rather than sooner is better.
