Gosman Kabirov, suffering from radiation sickness, has made a desperate appeal to the Swiss National Council today; "Don’t allow Russia to do business with Switzerland. We, the people from Russia will pay for that with our health and our lives.” Kabirov was invited by Greenpeace to come to Switzerland. He brought shocking images with him from Russia, which document the life with nuclear waste. The National Council will soon advice on the new Nuclear Energy Act. With this new law a decision will be made on the future of Swiss nuclear waste. Should it be disposed directly in Switzerland or should it, as the nuclear industry wants it to, be reprocessed and stored abroad? The preparatory commission of the National Council (UREK) wants to allow the controversial reprocessing, although the Federal Council proposed a ban. The Senate made it clear that exports to foreign countries should be possible, when "international standards" are met. But the term "international standards" opens the door for unfair transactions. This is shown in the example of Russian fuel factory Elektrostal, where the nuclear power plant Gösgen is having its fuel produced. The plant officially meets the "international standard", but the security is in poor condition: last December for example, a gang of smugglers stole uranium from Elektrostal with which weapons can be produced.
