“Russia has shut down a weapons-grade plutonium reactor as part of a deal with the United States to reduce the risk that loose nukes would get into the hands of terrorists. The Siberian plant founded by Soviet leader Josef Stalin, was turned off on Sunday, 45 years after it was started up to create plutonium for Cold-war era bombs.” (Reuters News )
