The U.S. Department of Energy administers more than a dozen nonproliferation programs in Russia designed to reduce the risk of nuclear material or expertise falling into dangerous hands. Of these, the joint physical security upgrades at Russian naval facilities have been highly successful—largely because of the flexible and stepwise working approach chosen and the cooperative working spirit and trust developed. Its lessons could contribute to other U.S-Russian nonproliferation activities.
