More then likely Russia got the message real quick, since several countries were involed.

MUCH more likely - Russia negotiated US support for her acceptance into the WTO based on restructuring her deal with Iran.
RUSSIA and Iran signed a key deal today for Russia to supply Iran with nuclear fuel to the Bushehr nuclear plant, Russia's Itar-Tass news agency reported from Bushehr.
The deal, which also provides for Iran to return spent nuclear fuel to Russia, had been expected to be signed yesterday but was delayed by 24 hours as talks continued.
Tass said Russia's nuclear energy chief Alexander Rumyantsev and the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organisation, Gholamreza Aghazadeh, had signed the document at the plant in Iran.
"We signed a confidential protocol in which the schedule for delivering fuel to Bushehr is fixed," Tass quoted Mr Rumyantsev as saying.
