World Nuclear Association: Russia’s President Putin has unilaterally announced cancellation of the 2000 Russia-US Plutonium Management and Disposition Agreement to reduce each country’s weapons-grade plutonium by 34 tonnes. He cited US proposals to dispose of the US plutonium in other ways than by completing the Savannah River MOX plant, which is behind schedule and over budget. The US government's intentions to down blend weapons grade plutonium and bury it in the ground instead of using it in commercial reactors is similar to decisions to stop development of fast reactors. The world goes on without the USA.
