Russian Researcher Hands Over Plutonium

A former Russian nuclear physicist turned over 14 ounces of plutonium he found in a dump and then kept in his garage, a news agency said Tuesday. Now he finds himself facing possible criminal charges. Leonid Grigorov said he had written several letters to authorities urging them to properly secure the eight containers of dangerous material that he said he found discarded near a mining factory in Zmeinogorsk in southern Siberia, the ITAR-Tass news agency said. When the letters went unanswered, he placed the material in a leaden case in his garage. Each container held 1.75 ounces of plutonium. “As an expert, I felt obliged to do that to avoid danger,” he said, according to ITAR-Tass.Full Story
