REDUCING RUSSIAN INVOLVEMENT IN WESTERN NUCLEAR POWER MARKETS BY DR. MATT BOWEN AND THE HONORABLE PAUL DABBAR Colombia SIPA, Center on Global Energy Policy MAY 2022 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.
