Just Say Nyet To More Putin Uranium
Garry Kasparov, once the world's highest-rated chess player, and now nemesis of Vladimir Putin, is urging Australia not to sell uranium to Russia, stating "should Australian uranium end up in the wrong hands - and it's not too far-fetched to suggest that Russia under Putin is already in the wrong hands - Australia will not be able to act innocent or to claim ignorance."
The deal is set to be concluded in September when Putin visits Australia. Australia's Foreign Affairs Minister Alexander Downer believes proliferation fears are unwarranted, stating "I don't think Russia would want to become a rogue state and break international law. It would lead to a collapse in their relations with Australia and probably with an awful lot more countries. I don't think there is any danger of that."
The fear, obviously, is that any such uranium would end up in Iran. Russia is helping Iran build its nuclear program, and had been enriching fuel for the Iranian regime.
Russia sure seems eager to pile up its already sizeable uranium enrichment capabilities:

Unfortunately for Downer, Russia is already a rogue state and is breaking "international law". The establishment just doesn't want to see it that way, not that I blame them, but wishful thinking doesn't make it a reality either.

Exactly. It is ridiculous to think Russia will be a good steward of the uranium. Just take a look at what kind of gangster state Putin has created. Putin cares zero about "international law." If he did, among other things, he would cooperate even the tiniest bit in Scotland Yard's requests as part of their Litvinenko investigation.
