Russia’s Proposed Ban On Uranium Exports Sends Stocks Soaring

  • Russia is reportedly considering a ban on enriched uranium exports. 
  • Russia is the third-largest source of U.S. uranium, accounting for about 16% of total U.S. imports.

Several weeks ago, when Biden instituted a wholesale ban on Russian energy exports, he explicitly carved out Russian uranium suppliers for the simple reason that the US is very much reliant on Russia for its nuclear power plant needs - after all, Russia is the third-largest source of U.S. uranium, accounting for about 16% of total U.S. imports.

This prompted us to ask back on March 9 whether Putin would place enriched uranium on the list of banned Russian exports, and why Uranium stocks soared late last week after U.S. Energy Department signaled more aid for current and future nuclear reactors.

Well, moments ago the very thorny issue of Russian uranium came to a head when Russia news agency TASS cited deputy prime minister Novak, who said that Russia is considering a ban on Uranium exports.
