The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain. But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one. At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.
A deal was even struck in 1993 for the United States to purchase all of the uranium from the warheads Russia's dismantling in compliance with the START treaties. The price tag for the 500 tons covered by the agreement is about $8 billion. At that price, it would only cost Washington another $12 billion to $15 billion to purchase the additional 800 tons of uranium and 200 tons of plutonium that Moscow has declared excess to its security needs.

Have fun listening to Mister Vlad himself. He doesn't care about the US elections.
