"It is difficult to say with absolute certainty what it is being prepared there. We recently received a document from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. We know that there is a process of coordination for transportation, quite possibly with the same waste," Slivnyak said.

According to the document, on January 30, the commission was contacted by TAM International Inc, which plans to send to Russia 10 tons of "low enriched uranium hexafluoride heels".

"Assurances from Russia that the material will be subject to all of the terms and conditions of an agreement for cooperation, are required. Your assistance in obtaining the necessary assurances will be appreciated," the document states.
