28 December, 1955 -- According to press reports, the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) arrested nine members of a criminal organization in Novosibirsk and seized a quantity of radioactive material. The material was identified in press reports as "enriched" uranium-235. The material had been transported to Novosibirsk by middlemen, possibly from Kazakstan. The ultimate destination may have been South Korea, according to press reports.

Dosen't mean that they would be buying it. Perhaps it would be for a terror cell in S. Korea? Also, uranium has to be HIGHLY enriched for it to be properly weaponized. It dosen't really qualify as a nuclear "weapon" as such until it can be formed into a bomb or a missile.
