Russia opens two nuclear research facilities closer to US, A Cold War move

In a worrying move, RUSSIA has opened two nuclear research facilities close to the US. Bolivia, in South America, will host the facilities as they operate.

Bolivia has a history of opposing US dominance in South America, which allows Russia to reach out to countries that are close to the US at a time when it is looking to increase its influence in pro-Moscow nations. The potential for a direct route to the US is as little as 5,000km with the plants being constructed in the South American country, cutting the trip from Russia to Florida.

The transition has been completed by Russian energy company Rosatom, which has tested the first nuclear manufacturing facilities.

According to a state company announcement on Monday, the relocation was completed by Russian energy behemoth Rosatom, which has started operating the first commercial facilities of the nuclear research and technology center.

In El Alto, a multipurpose irradiation center and a preclinical cyclotron radiopharmaceutical complex have been opened.

The preclinical cyclotron-radiopharmaceutical complex, which has a cyclotron, is anticipated to supply radiopharmaceuticals to Bolivian nuclear medicine centers for clinical studies involving more than 5,000 patients annually.

Rosatom states that as a result, Bolivian individuals would be able to receive prompt, thorough medical evaluations with the use of cutting-edge nuclear medicine procedures.
