60 percent of CTR funds for securing weapons of mass destruction do not reach Russia

Konstantin Kosachev, chairman of the foreign policy committee of the Lower House of the Russian parliament, told recently RBC Daily about that. The CTR program allocated $6.5 billion in total to secure weapons of mass destruction since 1992 . “But according to some specialists about 60% of this sum do not reach Russia, but remain in various structures organising the process. But anyway the sum is decent, and what is the most important that implementation of this program back in 1992-1994 solved a huge problem for Russia and the whole world concerning taking out the nuclear weapons from Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Byelorussia” Konstantin Usachev said.
