Privet Iz Afriky


According to the authors, in 1995 the Cypriot company 'Revis Servises' made almost $10 million a year in profits by selling fissile material from the Mayak Production Association in Chelyabinsk, Russia. It turned out that the Cypriot company was a front for Mayak, the Dutch company 'Amerskham Benilyuks BU,' and the Russian exporter Tekhsnabeksport. Tekhsnabeksport had previously operated as a middle man selling products from the Institute of Atomic Reactors (SRIAR) in Dmitrovgrad.
