Despite pressure form the West for them to be shut down their Chernobyl-type reactors immediately, Russia, Ukraine and Lithuania have consistently refused to comply.
They argue that the power generated by these reactors is much too important locally to lose, especially since supplies of alternative energy are declining.
In this overview of the situation, Robert Ebel demonstrates the dangers posed by these ongoing nuclear operations, and argues that in order to avoid the prospect of another major nuclear accident, the West must unite to offer the former USSR an acceptable altemative.
