Gathered from a wide variety of public sources, the information in this report is not otherwise available in any single public report. Brought together here are data on Soviet agreements for nuclear cooperation, nuclear power plants in the USSR, characteristics of Soviet reactor designs, enrichment services, and projected plutonium production and uranium consumption for the USSR and several other countries. The report reviews the China experience, the Urals accident, and the dangers of diffusion of civilian nuclear power generating technology in the possible conversion to nuclear fuels for use in nuclear warheads. Appendixes contain the text of the Safeguards Agreement in the Soviet Heavy Water Sale to India (1977), the U.S./Soviet Agreement for Cooperation in the Field of Energy (1974), and Department of State reports on the U.S./Soviet Cooperation on Energy Research (1978).
