Ukraine: Russia Could Further Devastate US, EU Economy With Ban On Uranium, Othe by Uptownerd: 8:20pm On Jun 14

Ukraine: Russia could further devastate US, EU economy with ban on Uranium, Nuclear reactor tech & components

According to research fellows Matt Bowen & Paul Dabbar from the Center for Global Energy Policy at Columbia University, a stop in uranium supply will hit US consumers harder.

The report was contained in an article which was written and published in "The Hill" and says that if Russia should stop supplying it's specially enriched uranium to US energy companies, USA will face serious consequences for reactor operations. They reiterated popular rhetorics amongst the populace when they restated that -

"There are several segments of the commercial nuclear value chain where a Russian supplier could impact the availability of a reactor in the West to provide power. For nuclear fuel, these include uranium mining and milling, conversion, enrichment and fuel fabrication. For existing Russian-designed reactors, they include providing unique original equipment manufacturer spare parts and services.

“This could lead to a shutdown of reactors, and given that nuclear energy accounts for more than 20 percent of generating capacity in some parts of the country, electricity prices will jump even above today's inflation,” the publication says.


From the article, Matt Bowen & Paul Dabbar reminded that several reactors currently operating in the US and EU are manufactured by Russia. This means that Putin's Russia also supplies the components for them. Should the conflict in Ukraine escalate further and the Kremlin feels aggrieved from NATO led military intervention, many nuclear power plants will be forced to suspend work if Russia cuts off supply.

According to them,

"Russia holds 46 percent of uranium enrichment capacity. The vast majority of the 439 reactors around the world require enriched uranium fuel, including all reactors in the U.S. fleet."

"Western leaders need to immediately consider their exposure to Russian nuclear exports and take steps to reduce it or face another energy shock at the hands of Putin." the publication stated.

Too much ignorance in one post.
1. You need enriched Uranium to produce electricity with uranium - Russia holds 46% of the world's capacity.
2. Many European and even American nuclear plants depends on Russian technology. All Russia need to do is stop spare parts from reaching them.
3. Russia produces its own microchip enough for military use. But imports most of its need for civilian use.
4. However, without Russia, most microchip producers can't produce because Russia controls over 40% of neon gas (a very important material needed for chip production.) With its capture of Mariupol and impending capture of Odessa, Russia would control over 80% of neon gas worldwide and that's absolutely going to wreck havoc if Russia decides to withhold neon gas. Price of neon gas has already risen by over 1000% since beginning of the war.

The world need Russia, it is too big a country to be ignored

No... Taiwan is the manufacturer of western chips... Not West and the last time I checked, Taiwan is under China and you know the position of China in this whole thing... They are friends to Russia... West has nothing... Trust me

Now back to uranium, we are not saying having uranium by the way Nigeria has uranium in that backward North.. What we are talking is enriched uranium by Russia for Russia built nuclear reactors which is in USA and other western countries... Make una dey get sense naaa... Russia no be like Nigeria, those guys are big...


For nuclear fuel, these include uranium mining and milling, conversion, enrichment and fuel fabrication....that is specialty of Russia, respect them

Definitely not due to him being daft, majority of them are clouded from sensible and rational use of their brains, simply because they have this dogmatically zombified love for America and Europe.
So, instead of engaging their thought process to analyze and infer meanings from the article they read, they instead follow a GIGO pattern that appeals to their "consolation".

USA is great but the truth is that this war has shown how great Russia is... In short Russia is the most powerful nation as it stands... No nation on earth can withstand what Russia is and yet stands...

your so daft and ignorant.

Lets see how russia survives without exporting.. op go back to your economics, you really need to grab some knowledge.

Ask Iran, Venezuela witb most oil reserve, that should be fucking rich like other Arab nation but aren't as a result of low export which was brought by sanctions. also Yemen, Syria, Iraq, how are they coping with such ban?

Some idiots will not understand . Russian's are truthful people but don't take them for granted. Even uk and America deny iron ore test and give Nigeria fake test only Russian test our iron ore and tell Nigeria is a good natural resources that's is the main reason Russian build ajaokute steel industry. So forget America and EU even NATO they are bunch of vultures looking to whom to waste.

Wow, did you even read at all? You’re just displaying your ignorance on a public forum smh

1. The post mentioned worlds largest capacity
2. Taiwan is semiconductors headquarters of the world, TSMC and Intel are expanding their factory in Arizona to counter that.
3. It’s also dumb to say a country doesn’t produce stuff, A lot of countries produce semiconductors, but still import from Taiwan. US produces oil and gas but still one of the worlds largest importer… got it ?

Don't mind the opinion post. Trying to pass on an opinion post as fact.

Australia (largest in the world) and Canada have lots of Uranium.
Lots of countries are also easily enriching uranium including Iran, Northkorea and pakistan. It's an easy technology.

Ajaokuta has been sabotaged by every semi-puppet government in Nigeria. Do you know how they sabotage Buhari's government?
For the record, Yaradua was killed because he was going to complete ajaokuta with Russia. That was the last time a Russian president came to Nigeria. Jonathan did not only turn over the project and indicted Nigeria or subsequent investor $500mil, he also replaced a good deal with General electric. He stopped all the deals his Boss Yaradua signed with Russia's Rosatom to help Nigeria in its endemic power supply. What happened to the gas turbines General electric brought into the country?(Your home work)

if you don't know today. Know one truth. Buhari was poisoned via his ac in aso rock. This is the leverage the west held against him and I am 100000% sure this is the price he must pay to also sabotage ajaokuta like the predecessors. This is the reason the west resuscitated his life back in London.

I have a long list of how previous semi-puppets sabotaged it. THE WEST IS BEHIND THE SABOTAGE

READ this - https://ooduarere.com/politics/899-ajaokuta-revival/
And Read the timeline of Ajaokuta sabotage in Nigeria( a total act of full-scale war)
