It's not as unusual as you might think. The Russians are more trust worthy to have the nukes than say some former Soviet satellite country.
The removal of more than 111 pounds of highly enriched uranium followed a pledge by Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych to get rid of all of his country's highly enriched uranium by April 2012.
