    "Russian Duma Approves Plan to Import Nuclear Waste"
    Washington Post (06/07/01) P. A28; Glasser, Susan B.
    Russia's State Duma authorized a plan today for the country to import
    thousands of tons of spent nuclear fuel, which is expected to raise $20
    billion for the government. However, environmentalists oppose the measure,
    saying it would harm the nation's environmental safety standards. Two
    million Russians supported a petition calling for a referendum to thwart the
    proposal, which was passed easily by the State Duma, the lower house of the
    country's parliament. The measure also faces opposition from U.S.
    environmental groups. (www.washingtonpost.com)
