Russia Sends Troops to Guard Nuclear Sites
Wed Sep 1, 2004 08:27 AM ET

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia deployed extra troops to guard dozens of nuclear
facilities across the country on Wednesday after militants seized a school
in the south and a suicide bomb attack in Moscow, the nuclear authority
said.
Russia, the world's No.2 atomic power after the United States, has come
under international pressure to do more to protect its Soviet-era nuclear
facilities against attack.

"After the latest terrorist attacks security services decided to send more
interior ministry troops to all nuclear sites across the country," a Russian
Atomic Energy Agency spokesman said.

He would not say how many additional troops were sent.

He said the government extended the order right after militants seized a
school near rebel Chechnya, taking up to 150 people hostage, and a Tuesday
suicide bomb attack in central Moscow which killed at least nine people.

Russia runs dozens of atomic reactors, uranium enrichment facilities and
nuclear research reactors -- some in the far-flung corners of Siberia and
which are poorly guarded.

Reactors are also attractive to militants because atomic fuel stored at many
sites can be used in nuclear bombs.

Duh... You ever seen the existing 'guards'? I watched an ABC cameraman walk through a hole in a fence and knock on the door at one of their facilities... Nobody answered.
