REDUCING RUSSIAN INVOLVEMENT IN WESTERN NUCLEAR POWER MARKETS
BY DR. MATT BOWEN AND THE HONORABLE PAUL DABBAR

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has led to considerable sanctions being levied 
against Russia.1 The nation is a major energy supplier to the world—including 
of oil, gas, coal, and nuclear fuel and reactors—and its energy sector is one 
area that has already been targeted. Since the war began, some members of the 
US Congress have called for banning imports of enriched uranium from Russia as 
soon as 2022 or as late as 2026.2 This commentary discusses Russian involvement 
in the Western3 nuclear power supply chain, particularly in the United States, 
as well as policy options to reduce—or end—that involvement.
