Chicago Tribune, Igor Khripunov

A Chicago Tribune article about the nuclear material left over from the days of the U.S.S.R. quotes Igor Khripunov, a research professional and expert in nuclear and radioactive materials security at UGA.

The article centered on terrorists’ ability to obtain nuclear material from former Soviet sources. When it comes to protecting radioactive materials, the countries that once made up the Soviet Union are “the weakest and most dangerous link in the whole chain,” Khripunov said.
